Applying to the EEF
To apply to the Employee Emergency Fund (EEF), an employee with USA Health should call the Spiritual Care Manager, Chaplain Kim Crawford Meeks, at 251-445-9015 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Allow 10-15 minutes for prescreening over the phone. If the employee meets the basic eligibility guidelines, the chaplain will schedule an in-person appointment. The employee will be asked to provide documentation of the following:
- Qualifying emergency
- EEF Intake Form
After this information is received, the case will be presented to the Employee Emergency Fund Committee (EEFC) for final review. The time from application to approval/denial is approximately one week. All assistance received is considered taxable income by the IRS and must be reported as such by USA Health.
