Everyone knows that college is an expensive investment in your children’s future. Police and Firemen’s Insurance Association is proud to offer its members a little help with a $1500 a year scholarship for their children pursuing undergraduate studies.
The scholarship is available to dependent children, step-children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of PFIA members. The scholarship is available for 4 years, however if your student isn’t awarded one in their freshmen year, you can reapply every year. Hopefully they can be awarded one for 3 years, 2 years or even 1 year helps. It is only for undergraduate studies.
There are a few rules that apply. The firefighter/retired firefighter must have a policy in place by November 1st of the current year and the applying student must have a policy in place by May of the year they are applying.
If you’re already a member, you’re all set. We will just need to enroll your child.
If you’re not a member yet, any of our policies can make you reach the requirement of membership in PFIA. If cost is an issue, we offer a $30,000 Accidental Death policy for $36 a year ($.69 a week or $1.38 bi-weekly for departments with payroll deduction).
Plans for children are either life insurance or an accident/injury plan.
The accident/injury plan covers up to $100 in medical costs (co-pays, etc) and a payment for specific injuries. It costs $48 a year ($.92 a week or $1.85 bi-weekly for departments with payroll deduction).
PFIA has awarded over 10 million dollars in scholarships to our kids, nationwide, since the program started.
If you’re interested in this or anything PFIA has to offer, please reach out, for the scholarships, the sooner the better. I am more than willing to come to individual union meetings to discuss all of our options as well. My phone is (401)639-0164 Email PFIA1261@gmail.com
