It has been brought to the attention of the United AFA MEC Benefits Committee that some pre-Merger United Flight Attendants were signed up in error in domiciles for National Group Protection (NGP) CAIC policies for which they were not eligible during the fourth quarter of 2016. As a result, those Flight Attendants will not be signed up for NGP policies, they are eligible to sign up for Aflac/CAIC policies in this enrollment. A letter has been mailed from AFA to all affected Flight Attendants. Click here for a copy of the letter.
