Update for Flight Attendants Separated on October 1, 2020
There continues to be questions/issues with COBRA coverage for Flight Attendants who were separated on October 1, 2020. Separated Flight Attendants are entitled to 18-months of COBRA by law. For those of you covered by the International Base Closure LOA, the first 3-months (October-December) are at “Active rates”, with the remaining 15-months at full cost of coverage, plus a 2% administrative surcharge.
If you don’t want/need COBRA health insurance, no action on your part is necessary, and you can disregard any bills you may receive, or you can contact the United Airlines Benefits Center and ask them to delete the coverage.
2021 Coverage Confirmation Letters: Because COBRA extends for 18-months, all separated Flight Attendants, will be receiving the 2021 coverage confirmation letter. If you don’t want coverage, you can disregard this letter.
For those of you who want coverage, we are continuing to hear that Active Coverage rates, for those of you covered under the LOA, are still not being applied. Rest assured that Active rates are agreed upon, and in writing with the LOA, and we will get this issue fixed.
Personnel File and Employment History
We have been getting some inquiries from Flight Attendants who were separated on October 1, 2020 about specific forms in their Personnel File, and regarding proof of their Employment History.
You can access details about your Employment History (formerly the UG100) on Flying Together >> Employee Services >> Managers Tool Box >> Personal Details >> Employee Profile (left edge of page).
For those of you needing a copy of your Personnel File (PE file) you can make your request via email to Rachel Telson (Rachel.firstname.lastname@example.org).
