Christmas checks for EBCI seniors

Senior Citizens do not have to submit anything or request a Christmas check.  Checks will be mailed to all EBCI tribal members who are 60 years of age or older by Dec. 31.  Checks will be sent to the same address as per capita.

Handicapped and/or disabled enrolled minors (under 18) who are eligible to receive a Christmas check must submit a statement that has been signed by a Doctor indicating that the child is handicapped and/or disabled.  The deadline to submit handicapped/disabled statements for enrolled minors is Monday, Nov. 26.  A new statement must be submitted each year.

Handicapped and/or disabled enrolled members (between 18-60) who waive their per capita check, but who would like to receive a Christmas check must submit a statement that has been signed by a Doctor indicating that they are handicapped and/or disabled.  The deadline to submit handicapped/disabled statements for enrolled members between 18-60 who have waived their per capita check is Monday, Nov. 26.  A new statement must be submitted each year.

Statements can be turned into the Tribal Operations Program Office, located beside the Council House or faxed to (828) 497-7020.  Please include EBCI enrollment numbers on all statements.
