New online Eligibility Calculator from the Masonic Samaritan Fund

Friday, 06 December 2013

Eligibility goes online

The Masonic Samaritan Fund has launched online tools to help Freemasons and their dependants.

The MSF’s new online Eligibility Calculator has been created to help potential applicants to the Fund understand its eligibility criteria. The simple tool enables anyone considering applying for a health or care grant to receive a quick and confidential assessment of whether they are likely to be eligible.

Answering ten questions could be the first step to stopping the frustration and worry of a long wait or huge expense to receive the health and care support you or a loved one needs. The calculator asks applicants about their masonic connection, the type of grant required and their household finances. It also explains what steps are necessary in order to make an application.

The calculator offers an additional route for Freemasons and their dependants to make an approach to the Fund. However, potential applicants are still encouraged to make direct contact with the grants team at any stage for advice. There’s nothing to lose by consulting the Eligibility Calculator; even those who don’t need assistance right now will benefit from knowing whether the MSF can help, should they or their loved ones need support in the future.

Staying in touch by email

The Eligibility Calculator isn’t the only digital tool developed by the MSF. Each month, the MSF circulates an e-newsletter that links to news from the Fund and stories of the people and medical research projects that have received help.
