On behalf of the Board of Commissioners of the Alabama Peace Officers’ Annuity & Benefit Fund, I welcome you to the Fund’s web site. The Annuity Fund was created by the State of Alabama Legislature by Act in 1969 and provides supplemental benefits for full time peace officers with the powers of arrest eligible for membership throughout the State of Alabama. The program provides retirement, disability, and death benefits to participating officers. Please look through the web site and contact me at (334) 242-4079 or firstname.lastname@example.org if I can answer any questions or provide additional information.
