The Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund is proud to support the firefighters and cooperators in Riverside County.  The firefighters of Riverside County provide fire and EMS services to one of the largest counties in California.  It is the goal of the Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund to be able to support those men and women in their time of need.  The Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund is a 501c3 (Non Profit) and is comprised of a board of Directors.  The Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund not only supports the firefighters of Riverside County, it also supports other nonprofit originations that are affiliated with the fire service, such as cancer research and the burn institutes.  The Riverside County Professional Firefighters Benevolent Fund has also aligned itself with CDF Firefighters Riverside Chapter Employees Association a 501c4, to help support the organizations that are directly represented by its membership, such as, diabetes and cancer research, RAGNAR and several sporting teams that are directly comprised of CALFIRE Local 2881 members.  These teams in turn also raise funds for other nonprofit organizations represented by the fire community.  In addition to direct assistance to the firefighting community and other non-profits, we have aligned ourselves with financial organizations to assist our members with their other financial needs.

Riverside Brothers and Sisters,

On July 9th, 2019, at 1000 and 1300, the RCPFBF will be hosting Body Scan International at the Union Hall for a presentation on body scans. Everyone is welcome to attend; we will also set up a Go to Meeting link to broadcast it. In addition, We would highly recommend you take an hour and review CalPERS Publications 7 – State Safety Retirement and CalPERS Publication 30 – Special Power of Attorney. PUB 7, will educate you on your retirement and what benefits you & your family are entitled to. PUB 30, will educate you on the need for a Special Power of Attorney, this is a simple form everyone should have on file with CalPERS in order for someone to act on your behalf, if you become incapacitated. Without it your family may not be able to get benefits until you recover and or expire.
