A reminder that open
enrollment is ongoing for some Oregon AFSCME members interested in supplemental
insurance policies being offered through Aflac. Aflac and Council 75 have
collaborated in the past year or so to bring a series of special programs to AFSCME
Enrollment for this period
has passed for some members, including state employees. Open enrollment
continues for employees of the following:
small cities, plus Eugene and Corvallis (as one group);
that are part of Oregon AFSCME's NLRB sector;
Child Care Providers Together (Local 132); and
of Portland (through June 15).
Aflac group products —
including Accident, Critical Illness, Hospital, Short Term Disability and
Dental — are designed and negotiated by Oregon AFSCME for its members
with guaranteed coverage for members available only for this open enrollment.
Again, each Oregon AFSCME local has a specific open enrollment period; this link will take you to the
AFSCME-Aflac site for more information. You can also contact Angela McCoy for
more information at (503) 449-5993, or e-mail her.
For this initial enrollment
only, Aflac is offering a group guarantee issue on its Critical Illness policy.
The guarantee means that anyone is able to buy the Critical Illness coverage
even with pre-existing conditions, meaning Aflac will insure both the healthy
and the sick during this enrollment. Critical Illness includes a $10,000 lump
sum payment for members and $5,000 for spouses. This special offer will end
Please note that AFSCME
members must initiate contact; the agreement between Aflac and the union does
not allow Aflac team members to contact union members directly without that
initial contact from the member.
