Atlantic County Firefighters'
Death Benefit Fund Association
The Atlantic County Firefighters' Death Benefit Fund Association was created for the purpose of providing a death benefit to the beneficiaries of the members of the fund.
The death benefit amount at the present time is $500.00 and is payable to a beneficiary who is designated by the member.
The officers of the death benefit fund make all efforts to deliver the death benefit to the beneficiary as soon as possible.
Any Atlantic County Firefighter whose age is at least eighteen (18) and not over fifty-nine (59) is eligible for membership in the death benefit fund.
Once a member of the fund, you will remain a member as long as you continue paying your annual dues and assessments.
This is regardless of any further affiliation with the fire service in Atlantic County.
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 two dollars ($2.00) and an assessment of ($2.00) per member death claim paid for the year, due at the year’s end.
There is one trustee 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 Firefighters' Death Benefit Fund Association.
