The C. R. Bard Employee Crisis Fund is designed to help eligible workers in the United States and Puerto Rico suffering from financial hardship short term in nature from a qualified disaster as defined by the IRS.

To be eligible, the date of the incident must have occurred on or after August 15, 2017 through the closing date of the BD Transaction. In addition, the date of the incident must have occurred within 90 days of the date the application is submitted.
