ONE-TIME DEATH BENEFIT
The Atlantic County Firemen’s Death Benefit Fund Association was created for the purpose of providing a death benefit to the Beneficial Members of the Fund. Membership is open to any Altantic County Firefighter whose age is at least Eighteen (18) and not over Fifty-Nine (59).
The present value of the death benefit, as of May 2012, is $500 and is payable to the beneficiary designated by the member.
The initial application includes an initiation of Two Dollars ($2.00) and an initial assessment of Two Dollars ($2.00) for a total of Four Dollars ($4.00). Thereafter, there is an annual membership fee of $2.00 and assessment of $2.00 per member death claim paid for at year’s end. Membership is continuous with the continued payment of annual dues and assessments.
There is one trustree from each member fire company of the fund. If your company does not have a trustee named to the fund, it is strongly recommended that a trustee be elected or appointed to represent your fire company in conducting the business of the Atlantic County Firemen’s Death Benefit Fund Association.
