Overview of NFL Player Benefits

If you are an active or former player interested in exploring the benefits available to you, please visit: NFL Player Benefits.

The NFL's commitment to players' long-term health and well-being extends on and off of the field, for every player, through all stages of their career. In service of that goal, active and former players are offered a range of benefits and resources collectively bargained with the NFLPA. Additionally, through the NFL’s Total Wellness Program, as well as the NFL Player Care Foundation, active and former players are offered a number of programs to achieve physical and emotional wellness, including peer-to-peer assistance, monetary grants, and counseling services.

The NFL and NFLPA have made numerous improvements to Player Benefits through the collective bargaining process over the last 25 years. In March 2020, the NFL and NFLPA ratified a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which provides substantial benefits to current and former Players.

The league is committed to continually advancing the resources available to players to equip them with the tools they need to succeed over the course of their lives.

The benefits summaries made available to players are included below.

For a complete description of your available options, you should refer to the applicable Summary Plan Description ("SPD") and Plan Document. In the event of any inconsistencies between these documents, the Plan Document governs. Additionally, these benefits are in the current 2020 Collective Bargaining Agreement ("CBA") and are subject to change with the next CBA, or earlier as agreed to by the NFL and NFLPA.
