AFLAC Enrollment Coming Soon!

The United AFA MEC Benefits Committee and Design Benefits are pleased to announce Open Enrollment for AFLAC/CAIC voluntary supplemental insurance benefits for United Flight Attendants (covered under the UAL contract). This enrollment will be a hybrid enrollment, allowing for onsite enrollment in the domicile, over the phone enrollment (including the ability to set up a call back time), or web enrollment. Product offerings will continue to include Short Term Disability, Critical Illness (including Cancer), Accident, and Hospital Indemnity policies. These plans are the same plan designs and premiums since the inception of these offerings. Premiums are payroll deducted.

Enrollment in these supplemental plans will take place from December 5, 2016 – January 15, 2017. We will have onsite enrollment in the domicile (U.S. locations only) from December 5-16, 2016. The phone and web enrollment will be available throughout the enrollment period through January 15, 2017. Policies signed up for during this enrollment period will become effective February 1, 2017.

Additional Occupational Reporting Procedures

Last week, Management announced that beginning, Nov. 2, all flight attendants (except those who are GUM-based) can report an injury incurred during flight or while on layover by calling the injury hotline at 877-924-7563. (The hotline is not currently toll-free from Europe or Asia; though Inflight Safety is working with Corporate Safety to provide a toll-free number for those areas as well). If you are seen by the on-site clinic in ORD, IAH or EWR, clinic personnel will file the initial report for you.

Regardless of how you report the injury, you must also complete an Irregular Operations Report. Time parameters for reporting injuries have not changed from the current information in the eFAOM, and the standardized hotline process will be updated in the eFAOM after the first of the year.
