A sudden financial hardship due to the loss of regular household income can be caused by the death of an immediate family member living in the household. When a bookseller experiences loss of income for this reason, the Book Industry Charitable Foundation may provide financial assistance to help cover basic living expenses for up to three months if there is sufficient evidence that financial equilibrium will be achieved during that period.
Additional documentation required for death in the family:
- Death certificate or obituary
