Situation of NWU member highlights benefit of Union Plus disaster help program
The case of At-large co-chair James Sandefur, whose family suffered losses in the recent tornadoes, highlights the benefits available to NWU members through Union Plus, a wide-ranging program for members of the UAW and AFL-CIO.
One program offers a $500 grant to any member suffering a documented financial loss as the result of a FEMA-certified natural disaster or emergency. That program is available only to members who have participated for 12 months or more in the Union Plus credit card, mortgage or insurance program.
For more information on the disaster relief program, go to http://www.unionplus.org/money-credit/natural-disaster-relief-fund.
Remember too that Union Plus has a free prescription drug discount card for NWU members and their family members. Go to unionplus.org and log in as a member of the UAW, then go to health benefits and download your cards.
