FREE Mortality Fund

Money is made available to the next of kin of those members who lose their life through either accidental or natural causes.

The money paid from the Union’s Mortality Fund is made available to assist with funeral arrangements that can be very costly.

The amount contributed to the member’s next-of-kin is based on the number of hours the member worked each week prior to their death:

  • 20 hours or more per week – $2000
  • 10-19 hours per week – $1800
  • less than 10 hours per week – $1600

Although this money will never compensate for the loss of a loved one, it does help make things easier for the family at this very difficult time.
