New LODD Benefit Signed into Law Today
Updated On: Sep 28, 2016

Legislation expanding benefits to families of fallen first responders signed into law.

Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016

LANSING, Mich. – Legislation extending medical benefits to surviving families of Michigan first responders who die in the line of duty was signed today by the Governor.

“Supporting families of fallen first responders is unquestionably the right thing to do. Michigan values our first responders, and this legislation allows the state to properly honor and support their sacrifices,” Snyder said.

MPFFU President Mark Docherty said that the lobbying efforts of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union and its members played a major role in getting this law passed.  The bill received bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate as well as from the Governor.

Senate Bill 218, sponsored by state Sen. Wayne Schmidt, provides medical benefits to surviving family members of local public safety officers. The bill expands on current benefits to include 60 months of health care in addition to an existing one-time payment of $25,000. The law is retroactive to Oct. 1, 2015. The bill is now Public Act 284 of 2016.  Here is an analysis of the new law.
