This program is voluntary and it is solely the Members’ decision to enroll. Members are responsible for paying their own costs. This is a basic summary of benefits and makes no guarantee or warranty on the processing of claims. Other limitations may apply. It is recommended that each enrolled Member obtain a copy and read the entire policy booklet. All non-banking administrative and transaction fees are included in the enclosed costs. Coverages are underwritten by Met Life.

IMPORTANT: If you leave the union or retire it is your responsibility to contact our office immediately at (847) 387-3555. Failure to do so within 30 days will forfeit your ability to keep coverage and receive any refunds.

Cost is determined by your age on the coverage effective date, and will increase on the next policy anniversary date after you enter the next age band. The union does not make any endorsement or recommendations regarding these benefits.
