The NSW Journalists’ Benevolent Fund considers applications from current or former NSW journalists and their families and journalists in exile looking to relocate to NSW.

MEAA members and journalists seeking assistance may complete the application form online below.

We will need some financial details in order to assess your application to the fund. Those details include: income, debts, any dependents, job status and ability to repay an interest-free loan, if it is given.  We also need a brief CV of the journalist (or related journalist in the case of family applications).

Once complete, this form will take you to a secure part of this website, where you may fill in those details, and scan in and attach documents such as bills. That form will be sent to our administration officer and the trustees for their consideration.

We will endeavour to get back to those applying for assistance within three working days to acknowledge receipt of their application and indicate when a decision about their application will be made.

Applications may be made any time and will be considered as quickly as possible.
