Survivor Benefits


You can indicate who should receive your member survivor benefit in the event of your death. This benefit is null and void if no beneficiary is assigned. It is the member’s responsibility to make sure this information is correct and updated in a timely manner. We cannot accept a child under the age of 18 or a family trust as the beneficiary for this member benefit. If no percentages are indicated, the benefit will be divided equally among other beneficiaries of the same class. If any beneficiary predeceases the member, that beneficiary’s share will be divided equally among the other surviving beneficiaries of the same class. If no beneficiary survives the member, funds will transfer back to the association.

Sworn Members

$20,000.00 to your beneficiaries in the event of your death.

Civilian Members

$20,000.00 to your beneficiaries in the event of your death.

Retired Members

Your unlimited data will remain and you will still be eligible at the 10 month increment.

I have upgraded since October and opted to change my plan to avoid paying full retail.
We can bring you back to Unlimited data if you would like, or you can stay on the unlimited minutes plan.

Criminal/Civil Legal Coverage

CLICK HERE to view/download the April 2017 Plan Document

Criminal/Civil defense coverage is provided through the PORAC Legal Defense Fund (LDF). The LDF was established over 25 years ago to provide legal representation for officers facing criminal or civil actions arising from acts or omissions occurring within the scope of their employment. In 1997, the Arizona Police Association secured the services of the LDF to protect its members through the services of a panel of criminal and civil defense specialists. The Legal Defense Fund has access to cash reserves in excess of $10 million specifically for legal protection of individual officers with no caps on benefits. Whatever a covered incident costs will be paid by the fund. In addition, the LDF has a time-proven record of excellence in providing legal defense and it is managed by peace officers for peace officers.

There are several advantages to having a tiered approach to your legal coverage:

  • Having more than one attorney or law firm at your service
  • Guaranteed not to have a conflict of interest in cases involving more than one officer
  • Guaranteed to have an attorney available when you need one
  • Guaranteed INDIVIDUAL representation
  • Guaranteed 100% coverage for any case relating to the scope of employment
  • Discounted attorney representation for criminal or civil matters not related to the scope of employment.
