How We Help

Financial Assistance

The U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund was formed exclusively for charitable and educational disbursements of its funds to the surviving family members of active United States Marshals, Deputy U.S. Marshals, Marshals Service employees, and Special Deputy U.S. Marshals who are killed in the line of duty.

Within 24 hours of a line of duty death, money is given to the surviving family to help with funeral costs and other expenses.

Educational Benefits

In addition to the immediate death assistance payments made by the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund, surviving spouses and dependent children are eligible for education benefit grants from the Fund. Government scholarships and similar private programs are an excellent way for family members to gain access to higher education after a line of duty death. The Fund stands ready to provide financial assistance to help with costs not covered by other sources.
