Public Safety Officers' Benefits (PSOB)

A unique effort of the U.S. Department of Justice; local, state, tribal, and federal public safety agencies; and national organizations, the Public Safety Officers' Benefits (PSOB) Program provides death and education benefits to survivors of fallen law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders, and disability benefits to officers catastrophically injured in the line of duty.

The BJA PSOB Office is honored to review the more than 1000 claims submitted each year on behalf of America's fallen and catastrophically disabled public safety heroes and their loved ones.
