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:
Having a Union Plus Pet Insurance policy means not having to worry about the cost of treating an unexpected illness or an injury resulting from an accident. Through Union Plus Pet Insurance Program, unionmembers save up to 10% off regular premium rates.
When pets become a part of your family, your heart often tells you to spare no expense for their health care and future well-being. But medical costs are rising for the four-legged members of the family just as they are for their owners. According to the American Animal Hospital Association, the average bill for a routine veterinary visit can cost $100 to $150 per visit. Treatment for your pets' major illness or injury can easily run into the thousands of dollars.
Union Plus Pet Services is designed to help labor union members keep their dogs, cats and other pets healthy and happy - at a reasonable price.
Bites, Barks & Messes: Pets and the Law
Is every dog really entitled to "one free bite?" Can you sue the owner of a barking dog or a cat that scares away the birds? Can you leave money to your pet through a trust? These are just a few of the most common questions people have about animals and the law. Members can take a quick look at the basic rules and then apply them to some common situations.
Available outside the US?
