We are here for You!


The Officers’ and Trustees of the Benevolent need to remind you that the organization is here to provide aid and assistance to our members in need.


Calling Post Hints
To avoid missing information that is sent out via Calling Post, it’s recommended that you do this:
If you haven’t done so, already; save the number (to your contacts) and name it- Calling Post NMFD Exempts – (405)308-4474
Some messages contain more info than others; so, when you get a call- let it go to voicemail; this way you can listen to the message as many times as you need.

“This is an attempt to making sure that every member is being informed as to what’s going on.”


Defined as any out of pocket PAID medical expenses.  Examples are Co-payment receipts with your name on it, print out from a drug store for prescriptions, dental bills & eye doctor’s bills.  They must be paid receipts and you must be the patient on all receipts.  The $400.00 is a one-time submittal for each calendar year. You cannot submit in increments.  Unpaid bills submitted will not be reimbursed and will be returned.  All paperwork must be submitted no later than December 31, 2022.  There will be no exceptions.

You may go to ANY place for eyeglasses of your choice and get glasses; the Benevolent will reimburse you $400.00. The receipt must be in your name, and this is for every two (2) years. (Increased on 5/3/18)

Death Benefit

A Members Beneficiary will receive reimbursements of funeral expenses that have been paid (a copy of the member’s death certificate, a PAID receipt from the funeral home and a request for assistance form must be filed and sent to this organization) by the beneficiary. The beneficiary will be reimbursed for the funeral home costs incurred up to $12,000.00.  This must be submitted and approved at an executive board meeting.

To participate in the above programs, you must be a member in good standing with at least six months of service in the benevolent and all dues paid and up to date.


If you have any questions, they can be directed to one of the Trustees, or brought up at the upcoming meeting.


Aid & Assistance Program
In January we sent out a sample copy of our benefit and assistance form to keep our members up to speed on the requirements imposed by the State in the administration of our funds.  While the forms may seem un-daunting, please remember our organization is here for you.  If you get into deep trouble and have exhausted all your means of support do not be afraid, seek a helping hand.  We do note for all our members that the purpose of the Exempt & Benevolent Association is to provide aid and assistance to indigent members.  To process a request for aid we do need all parts of the Assistance form completed and all supporting documentation.  Any information that you provide is kept in the strictest confidence.


It must be noted that any benefit claim must be submitted NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 31 of each calendar year.  Any claims or request received after that time will not be honored.
