Program Eligibility

We’re here to help. If you are in a difficult situation and need assistance, the first step is to determine if you qualify for assistance from the ERF. Some questions to ask include: 1) Am I a qualifying employee? 2) do I have a qualifying event? 3) are my expenses eligible? While there is a vetting process to ensure eligibility for the program, the initial qualifiers are that simple. Let’s find out if you may be eligible based on these questions.
