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.

ONE-TIME DEATH BENEFIT   from the State of Virginia
A one-time payment of $100,000 shall be paid to the dependents of a fallen paid or volunteer firefighter under the Virginia Line of Duty Act (LODA). If the firefighter passes due to an occupational disease, this payment is instead $25,000. If the deceased did not specify to whom this payment should go in their will, the following order is used to determine the recipient: spouse, children and grandchildren, parents, siblings and their children, next of kin by blood, and next of kin by marriage.
