The Mission of The Employee Assistance Fund, as a non-profit organization, is to provide financial support to qualifying Alaska Airlines employees who need assistance due to catastrophic or medical reasons. The EAF is here to aid employees in the event of an emergency, major medical situation or for those employees suffering a catastrophic loss. Qualifying applicants are employee’s that come to us as a last resort after having exhausted all sick leave, vacation time, and other avenues of assistance. The EAF is here to help with critical household expenses and health insurance premiums. Generally, we are a one-time, short-term assistance, helping employees up to a maximum of 6 months.
All applications received are confidential. Each is researched and voted upon by a Board of Directors consisting of volunteers representing every division of Alaska Airlines. Assistance is just for current employees experiencing a loss in pay due themselves, their spouse, or dependent children, in the above circumstances. (not included: Parents, Siblings, Grandparents, Grown Children)
All payments are made directly to the creditor. We do not make payment on legal fees, luxury items or credit card debt nor do we give cash to employees.
*Applications for assistance are accepted from current, active employees as well employees who are on a paid or unpaid leave. We are not able to aid employees who are on furlough, underemployed or have otherwise separated from the company.
