Union Plus Benefits--Beyond Scholarships

In a previous post, we discussed scholarships available to union members and their families.  But there are more benefits available to union members. AFL-CIO members can find out about other  benefits at the Union Plus website. Some are for holders of Union Plus credit cards, or Union Plus mortgages. These include small grants of your union has been on strike, or if you have become disabled, been hospitalized, or suffered a natural disaster.  Check out this page for more information.

Families of AFL-CIO members may be eligible for some benefits, too, such as scholarships, discounts on wireless phone service, rebates on heating oil, and various discounts on car rentals, medical bill negotiating services, health club memberships, and more. The whole list and eligible family members are listed here. For more information, call 1-800-472-2005.

If you aren't a member of the AFL-CIO, but another union, check out your own union website for information.
