About Open Enrollment
We are pleased to inform you that your union is currently in an open enrollment.
All of the available coverages are offered separately and a member’s participation in one or all of those coverages, and the level to which he or she elects to participate, is voluntary and strictly the individual’s choice.
The purpose of this Group Insurance Plan is to give you options to supplement your income in the event that you cannot work as a result of an injury, illness or death. This group plan offers Disability Insurance and Life Insurance with Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage.
All insurance under this Union Group Policy will cover you for as long as you continue to remain actively employed, pay premium, and be in good standing with the union.
