The Federal Road Safety commission provides housing benefits for staff members through the FRSC housing cooperative scheme that was inaugurated in June 2004. The concept of this scheme was born out of the burning desire to assist members who also contribute to the National Housing Fund to access the Federal Mortgage Bank Loan and become proud owners of their houses which they may retire to.

The objective of the scheme is;

  • To procure, build, and allot empty lands to her members
  • To manage the estates for serving and retiring/discharging service-personnel.

Special Marshals welfare

Special marshals are covered by an insurance policy in case of death through road traffic accident. They are also protected by immunity provision in the Act. By this immunity clause, the special marshal is shielded from liability for any act validly done by him on the route to which he is assigned.

Navy, Air force, and The Nigerian Army .
