IBF Seafarers’ Support (Welfare) Fund

SSF Grant

IBF Welfare Fund Rebate

In 2003 IMEC successfully negotiated that a proportion of JNG members’ contributions to the ITF Assistance, Welfare and Protection Fund (ITF Welfare Fund) be paid into the IBF Welfare Fund for this purpose. This is an exclusive benefit to Members of the JNG, and currently Members can claim back up to 20% of total ITF Welfare Fund payments made in the previous year.

Applications for grants are made to support seafarer welfare aboard their vessels in the provision of resources such as:

  • Entertainment facilities
  • DVD libraries
  • Newslink services
  • Events (e.g. Christmas parties for seafarers and their families)
  • The provision of sports and gym equipment
