Extra Support for those in Need

6.1 Extra Support for those in Need

Helping those most at risk when times get tough, this program assists members facing severe, unexpected financial hardship or emergency.

This program can assist with food, telephone bills and rental assistance when other help is not available. To ensure IBN’s resources continue to be available to those most in need this program requires proof of financial hardship.

This program is managed by IBN’s Service Delivery Team to give members applying for assistance access to the necessary case management services to help improve their situation.

To view a full description of the program, plus benefits, exclusions/conditions and required documentation see page 48-49 of the Community Programs Handbook.
