OFFICER/FIREFIGHTER RESOURCES

Line-of-Duty Death Assistance Process

The 100 Club assists dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters who have been killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.

The process for receiving assistance is as follows:

The 100 Club must receive written notification confirming

that a line-of-duty death has occurred from the chief executive officer of the involved agency that the deceased officer or firefighter has dependents. If the deceased does not have dependents, financial assistance in the amount of $20,000 is provided to the executor of the officer or firefighter’s estate.

Upon written notification of the Line-of-duty death

The 100 Club presents the surviving spouse with a letter expressing condolences from the Board and $20,000 to assist with any immediate financial needs. This presentation usually takes place within 24 hours of our notification.

Benefits Committee

When the time is appropriate, 100 Club representatives will contact the surviving spouse to make arrangements to meet and discuss the surviving dependents financial situation. The results of that meeting will be shared with the full Benefits Committee, who will make an assistance recommendation to the Board of Directors for approval.

The 100 Club’s gift

After approval by the Board, the dependents will be presented financial help from The 100 Club.

Assistance for Serious Injuries

Law enforcement officers or firefighters who are seriously injured in the line of duty and have been unable to work for a minimum of 30 days are eligible to request financial assistance from The 100 Club. A detailed request must be submitted in writing, and must include approval of the chief executive of the officer’s or firefighter’s agency.
For more information, please contact The 100 Club 713-952-0100.
