Our History

The Firemen’s Benevolent Association of Tampa

Established in 1909 the Firemen’s Benevolent Association of the City of Tampa has served the men and women of Tampa Fire Rescue for over a century. Founded as a widow’s and orphan’s fund for the families of fallen firefighter’s the FBA has grown to support the health and welfare of Tampa’s Firefighters and has stood to provide physical, emotional and financial assistance to its members in times of need.

 

These brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service of their community are, at times, faced with hardships of their own– devastating hardships that impact not only themselves but their families as well. In keeping with the rich traditions of the fire service and its brotherhood, the Firemen’s Benevolent Association was organized to offer assistance to our firefighters during these difficult times.

 

The FBA is a non-profit Association who’s purpose is to support the health and welfare of its firefighters through the provision and management of life, health and accidental injury assistance as well as emotional support and financial bereavement assitance for both active and retired members.

To all active Benevolent Association members who had AFLAC policies in 2020:

As I am sure you are all aware of the anomalous 27th pay cycle in 2020, the FBA would like to extend our sincerest apologies for the oversight and addition premium which was deducted.

The simplest remedy for this has been to forego 1 deduction of an AFLAC premium here in 2021; which you will note has occurred on this current pay cycle. With that, those who did not cancel your AFLAC accounts during this past open enrollment this remedy will nullify any monetary inequality.

For those of you who did cancel your AFLAC during open enrollment a refund will be forthcoming.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we rectify the situation.
If you have any questions/concerns feel free to contact the SBA office at any time and we will be happy to assist you.
