Help for spouses and other dependents of CSIS policyholders
Ever since the charity was founded, the Fund has given direct assistance to a small number of widows and widowers of deceased CSIS policyholders. These grants may typically help with costs such as essential household bills, replacing white goods, and, in rare cases, to help clear debts. Applicants must have their financial circumstances assessed and sometimes we refer cases to charities with which we have close working relationships, such as the Charity for Civil Servants.
This assistance is given on a purely discretionary basis, and must be applied for directly. To ask about eligibility for a grant please contact the Charity Fund Secretary using our enquiry form.
Please note that we can only give grants or advice to individuals who are either current Civil Service Insurance Society policyholders or who have been financially dependent on a policyholder who has died. If you’re not eligible, please see our Useful Links page for other organisations which may be able to assist.
