Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program

U.S. Department of Justice > Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program

 

Program Description:

The Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program (PSOB) was established to provide a death benefit to the eligible survivors of federal, state or local public safety officers whose death was the direct and proximate result of a personal (traumatic) injury sustained in the line of duty (certain fatal, line of duty heart attacks and strokes are also covered). Effective November 29, 1990, the act also provides a disability benefit to eligible public safety officers who have been permanently and totally disabled as the direct result of a catastrophic personal injury sustained in the line of duty. The injury must permanently prevent the officer from performing any gainful work.

 

General Program Requirements:

Eligible beneficiaries for PSOB purposes, in this order, are spouses; children; individuals designated as PSOB beneficiaries or life insurance beneficiaries on file with the agency at the time of the officer's death; or surviving parents. Children include any natural, out-of-wedlock, adopted or posthumous child, or stepchild who is 18 years old or younger. Children between the ages of 18 and 22 may be eligible if a full-time student at the time of the officer's death, and children over 18 who are incapable of self-support at the time of the officer's death.
