ASEA maintains a benevolent fund to assist the survivors of both active and retiree members. The policy will be based on a tiered payment system as an incentive to keep your ASEA membership. The payment increases as your years of membership increase.
1-10 years = $250
11-15 years = $500
16-20 years = $750
21 plus years = $1,000
Payment will be made regardless of the cause of death except in these circumstances:
• Intentional self-inflicted injury within two years of joining ASEA.
• War or any act of war.
• Insurrection, rioting or police duty as a member of any military, naval or air organization.
• Committing or attempting to commit a felony.
• Accidental death occurring from operating any unlicensed aircraft or while illegally operating any aircraft.
