Are you an AFT Member? Then you’re covered.
The AFT has arranged for all active, working members* in good standing to have a $5,000 accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance policy from The Union Labor Life Insurance Company. The AD&D benefit is included in your AFT local union membership, so you’re already covered. (See AFT’s site for more insurance options.)
Whether an accident resulting in a covered injury or loss of life happens at work or away, this AD&D insurance coverage pays you or your beneficiary a cash benefit within 90 days.
As one of the valuable benefits of AFT membership, the AFT has paid for this coverage for ALL eligible members of the AFT.
* Retired members and members who pay a fee for representation but are not full members are not eligible for this benefit.
