The New York Black Car Fund is enhancing its benefits programs for covered drivers, even when they are not working. This includes raising the minimum net payment by nearly 40% and increasing the age of eligibility from 65 to 70 years old.

The Fund also recently added a new Critical Illness Benefit that pays drivers up to $20,000 if they become stricken with certain serious illnesses.

The start date for the new and improved benefits had not been announced as of mid-May but are expected to be implemented this summer. For more information, call The Black Car Fund at 212.269.4800 or visit

In-person courses – which pay $300 – are available, but spots are limited, according to The Black Car Fund.
