The BackStoppers Inc.

The BackStoppers' assistance is immediate and ongoing. Within hours of the death of a police officer, firefighter, publicly-funded paramedic or EMT, his or her family receives a check for $5,000 from The BackStoppers with assurance of further help.

Within a few weeks, The BackStoppers' representatives meet with the surviving spouse to identify the family's other financial obligations. The organization's goal is to make the family debt-free, and then to provide ongoing support for education and other extraordinary expenses.

Follow-up:
* Assumption of financial obligations (i.e., mortgage payments, automobile payments, credit card debt, loan debt, taxes, insurance, etc.) as funding permits
* Health and dental insurance, if needed
* Elementary and secondary educational assistance grades K–12
* College/vocational tuition assistance to spouse/survivors
* Holiday gift to family
* Miscellaneous assistance as approved by Board of Directors (i.e., home repairs, unusual medical expenses, etc.)
* Financial counseling
These benefits are not all-inclusive.
