The NFL players’ union has set up an organization to aid former players, establishing it out of a $22 million fund from the collective bargaining agreement with the league.

Called The Trust, the group will assist players in areas such as brain and body evaluations; health and nutrition; physical fitness; career transition; and financial education. All of these services will be provided with no out-of-pocket costs to players.

Any player who had two or more accredited seasons in the league is eligible. Program managers to assist each player, working to create a specific plan to achieve his goals, will be available.

The Trust also has partnered with the University of North Carolina, Tulane University and the Cleveland Clinic to provide brain and body assessments for former players. A player’s spouse can accompany him free of charge.
