As long as the NFLPA and the NFL do not come up with a solution regarding a new collective bargaining agreement and the NFL’s lockout is not enjoined by a court of law, the NFLPA will begin making payments to the players it represents starting on April 15, 2011. Players will receive 1/6 of the amount of dues that they paid into the Dues Lockout Fund on the 15th day of every month starting on April 15th and ending on September 15, 2011. At this point in time, there is no indication as to what will happen to any remaining funds should the parties come to a resolution regarding a new collective bargaining agreement prior to September 15.
Players who have deposited money into the Dues Lockout Fund and wish to start receiving payments on April 15th must complete the direct deposit enrollment form embedded below and return it to the NFLPA with a voided check from their checking account or a bank letter verifying the account information.
Email the completed form and a copy of the voided check to email@example.com, fax it to (202) 756-9319, or mail it to NFLPA, Attn: Accounting, 1133 20th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036.
