Florida Firefighter Cancer Benefit Program

The Florida Firefighter Cancer Benefit Program, designed by the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust (FMIT), satisfies the lump-sum benefit requirements of the firefighter cancer benefit law (Florida Statute 112.1816) effective July 1, 2019.

FMIT’s Florida Firefighter Cancer Benefit Program helps local government employers of full-time firefighters in several key ways. First, employers can instantly comply with the significant lump-sum benefit requirement of the law and reduce its related financial burden. Through FMIT’s partnership with The Hartford, employers are provided a more efficient group purchasing platform and seamless benefit administration. The Hartford is a leading provider of Group Life Insurance and Disability benefits, the No. 2 insurer in the United States, and an experienced leader in providing best-in-class cancer plan administration.

Offering three forms of protection, our coverage plans are designed to help provide financial support for eligible firefighters diagnosed with cancer.

The Lump-Sum Cancer Benefit
A $25,000 cash benefit, paid upon the diagnosis of cancer, may be used to meet the firefighter’s financial needs.

Optional Death Benefit
For employers whose policies include the optional life coverage, an additional $75,000 cash benefit will be paid in the event of the firefighter’s death due to complications associated with cancer.
