The Member Services Department processes all official documentation for enrollment, elections, burial, the Vision Service Program and assists with Minors Trust documents.

Enrollment

Applications for enrollment are available through the Member Services Department. All applications reviewed for enrollment must be complete and include all required documentation. All incomplete applications will be returned to prospective members with 30 days to make revisions before the application goes before the Enrollment Review Committee to determine eligibility.

Elections

All enrolled Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation members are eligible to vote at the age of 18. Members will automatically receive a voter registration form in the mail upon turning 18. The voter registration form must be on file prior to any member voting in a Tribal Election. Contact Member Services to update your address.

Burial Fund

The Burial Fund was established to help ease the financial burden of funeral expenditures at a time of a family member’s death.

The burial benefit will pay up to $ 6,000 in burial costs per eligible individual. Tribal members with funeral expense for stillborn or premature death of infant (within the first 12 months of life) can also be reimbursed for up to $500 to be paid to a funeral home for burial.

All burial allowance applications and statements must be filed with the Tribal Council within one year from a member’s date of death. The Burial Plan may be amended or terminated only by a vote of the General Council, with a quorum present, and approval by the Secretary of the Interior.

Minors Trust

The Minors Trust is operated by Providence First Trust Company. The Member Services department assists with the handling of forms for Minors Trust and change of address.

VSP

Every enrolled member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation is eligible for enrollment in the Vision Service Plan paid for by the Nation. To sign up for this benefit, contact Member Services.
