Extend Death Benefits for Fire Fighter Cancer Deaths
Cancer is the biggest threat facing fire fighters and is our leading cause of death. The Public Safety Officers Benefits (PSOB) program provides federal death and disability benefits for fire fighters killed or permanently injured in the line of duty. While the PSOB program recognizes a variety of medical deaths, like heart attacks and 9/11-connected cancer, the PSOB program does not provide benefits when a fire fighter dies from "routine" occupational cancer. This denial of benefits has forced countless fire fighters' survivors to face financial struggles after losing a loved one. The IAFF urges Congress to recognize cancer deaths as line of duty deaths and provide federal benefits to these fire fighters' survivors.
