The Members’ Benefits Benevolent Fund is administered by a Committee of AUPE members. Sometimes an AUPE member faces an emergency that qualifies for financial assistance from the union.

If you face financial emergency, you may apply for assistance from the fund by filling out the form linked below. All areas of the application form must be completed in full as well as signed and dated by the member before it is sent to the Members’ Benefits Committee Finance contact. Supporting financial documents must be included with the application form in order to be considered by the Members’ Benefits Committee.

Completed applications along with required supporting financial documentation can be faxed to 780-930-3344, or mailed to AUPE, 10451-170 Street Edmonton, AB T5P 4S7, Attention: Finance Department.

The Committee meets once each month to review and assess individual applications. Applications will be reviewed and carefully considered on their own merits. Each case is kept strictly confidential. The Committee has the authority to approve or deny applications, and applicant members will be notified of the Committee’s decision.

Applicants for financial assistance affected by a decision of the Members’ Benefits Committee will have the right to appeal that decision to the President – whose decision will be final and binding.
