American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL)
As a dues-paying member or retiree of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Joint Board of Workers United, you have a no-cost $4,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefit. This AD&D benefit and other items listed below are provided jointly through our Region and American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL), a 100% union company serving working families.
In October 2022, all members were mailed a letter from Regional Director Patrick Jones Sr. introducing this program. Included with this letter was a beneficiary designation card. If you return the card you can also receive a no-cost membership in the recently introduced AIL Plus program, your connection to convenient discounts on dental care, prescriptions, diabetic supplies, vision care supplies, telemedicine, chiropractic care and more. You can also receive Child Safe Kits for your children and grandchildren at no cost. These kits help you gather vital data, photos and fingerprints for authorities in the event of an emergency.
An AIL representative, who is a member of OPEIU Local 277, will call on you to deliver your certificate of coverage, witness your beneficiary designation, register you for the AIL Plus program, and provide your Child Safe Kits. AIL also has other supplemental insurance programs, presented in the spirit of "Be Union - Buy Union" available strictly on a voluntary basis.
If you received the letter, you may return the enclosed beneficiary card via mail in the postage-paid envelope provided or you can directly respond online by visiting www.mybenefits.ailife.com and enter access code: SGQBG.
