Fallen Officer Funds
We provide financial support for the families of fallen law enforcement officers whose deaths occur in the line of duty.
In the event of a death in the line of duty, the federal government and most states provide a death benefit that will help families recover; but it may take up to a year or more before the request goes through the channels necessary to reach the family of the slain officer. In the meantime, the family has to suffer not only the death, but also financial hardship.
The SSPBA accidental death benefit program provides a timely payment to a member’s family worth one year’s salary, up to $60,000. Donations to the Police Benevolent Foundation help to supplement the cost of this much-needed benefit.
