INSTRUCTIONS

The DSG Cares Fund ("Fund") has been created as a last resort to help team members who are facing financial hardship because of a qualified event.

You are encouraged to read these complete instructions to understand the events eligible for assistance. A team member can only receive financial assistance once within a 12 month period (calendar year). In the case of a denied application, the team member is eligible to submit a new application (for a new event) after six months.

Team members should use available resources such as medical/life insurance, short/long term disability, personal savings, assistance from family members, etc. before applying for assistance. In the event of an unexpected and unavoidable emergency that creates a financial hardship, DSG team members may apply for assistance within the categories of eligible events.

**** Grants will not be awarded for expenses including, but not limited to, legal fees, insured property losses, insurable medical conditions, any deductibles required by insurances, any insurance copayments, bills unrelated to the qualified event, bills with service dates over 120 days prior to the application date, non-essential items or services, etc. ***
