In the event of a qualifying death/disability to an eligible public safety officer, beneficiaries may be eligible for benefits from the Public Safety Memorial Fund Board. In order to be eligible for those benefits, certain timelines must be kept according to the administrative rules and laws that govern the Memorial Fund and its Board.
If eligible to receive an award, the Memorial Fund Board may consider any other monetary awards for which family members applied (or may be eligible for) when considering the amount of award to be granted. The Memorial Fund Board may consider financial need as well as the amount of funds available and anticipated amounts needed to meet all other anticipated claims to the fund. The Memorial Fund Board has the right to prioritize claims or pro-rate the amounts awarded based upon the anticipated available funds. Payments may be made in a lump sum or in periodic payments to the beneficiaries. If you have any questions or would like additional information about the Public Safety Memorial Fund, please contact the DPSST at (503) 378-2100.
