Type: AFA Article

Beginning May 7 through June 6, 2018, the election period for the 2018 – 2019 Safeware LINK insurance will open. Flight Attendants are required to make a selection as to whether or not they want insurance, by Opting IN that will reduce your exposure to having to pay a $300 replacement fee or Opting OUT of coverage. If Link/sled is lost or stolen the replacement charge will be $300. This charge is waived for the first instance of theft, if a police report is submitted within 10 days.

The cost is $30.oo dollars for the year and coverage includes both the LINK and the sled device. Payment may be made via payroll deduction or credit card. Flight Attendants can make their selection by visiting my.safeware.com/ual


It is important to understand that you must actively opt in.  If you take no action, you will be considered to have opted out of the coverage and will be responsible for the replacement cost of the device.

Note: Flight Attendants deciding to opt in after the election deadline, will need to opt in at their base, where validation of your LINK and sled will be required. The rate will be pro-rated based on the date you make the election.
