How does one qualify for Pink Funds?
Visit our Pre-Qualify Here page for more information. Can you give me some examples of how the money is used?
Charlene had used up her Federal Medical Leave Act and needed another three months to complete her treatment. While her short term disability would cover housing and transportation, it did not cover the maintenance of her health and dental insurance premiums. The Pink Fund covered those two bills until she returned to work.
