My income has gone down: can I qualify for emergency aid?

Our rules do not provide for widespread financial aid to compensate for lost income.

However, you should be aware that CRPN does have a Social Welfare fund which our Social Welfare board uses to grant one-time aid to members facing a serious qualifying life event or disability-or age-related difficulty that has left them in dire financial circumstances.

In this case, if you send us a written request, we will send you a form for you to fill out and send back along with the documentary evidence we will need to assess how much your “survival income” is. We will then conduct a welfare assessment in your home and the board will decide on the basis of your application and this assessment.
