Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program: Coronavirus / COVID-19 Update [March 2020] [open pdf - 226KB]
From the Document: "Administered by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Public Safety Officers' Benefits (PSOB) Program provides death benefits to the eligible survivors of public safety officers who are fatally injured in the line of duty, disability benefits to public safety officers catastrophically injured in the line of duty, and education benefits to the eligible spouses and children of fallen and catastrophically injured officers. BJA's PSOB Office is honored to review the more than 1,000 claims submitted each year on behalf of America's fallen and injured public safety heroes and their loved ones. With the recent outbreak of the coronavirus, or COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], America's law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders face a new health risk as they continue to selflessly serve their communities."
