When you join the union, you have access to these AFGE benefits. These benefits are backed by the collective strength of over 10-million members of AFL-CIO unions. By using one or two of the programs, many members save as much as their annual dues.
These Money-Saving Benefits are Available Only to AFGE Members:
A term life insurance policy that pays double the amount listed below in the event of accidental death or dismemberment. Underwritten by Union Labor Life Insurance Company.
Individuals cannot obtain this benefit; it is only available to all members of a Local that has elected to provide this benefit to all their members by way of constitutional amendment. Each Local also determines the number of units.
You are eligible to participate in the Life Insurance and AD&D Plan if you belong to an insured Local, are under the age of 71 and have active duty status. If you do not have active duty status upon joining an insured Local, you will become an eligible member when active duty status is resumed.
