Learn your way to earning your way: Free student debt webinar for union families from Union Plus

College is all about options: Economics or art history? Debate club or newspaper? Pepperoni or extra cheese?

But after graduation, with average student debt nearing almost $30,000, your financial options as a college grad may be limited. For students in a difficult job market, paychecks strangled by loan payments restrict plans for financial independence, car purchases, and home ownership.

To help, Union Plus has teamed up with benefit partners The Princeton Review and Money Management International to teach union families how to make college more affordable, how to deal with college debt, and how to take full advantage of the Union Plus education benefits already available.

The 1-hour Learn Your Way to Earning Your Way webinar will help you learn where financial aid comes from and how the system works. There are some fabulous financial aid opportunities available, regardless of your income level.

The webinar also includes details on two brand new Union Plus programs:

  • the Student Debt Eraser, providing grants of $500 to help pay off student loans, and
  • the $20K Student Loan Giveaway, a sweepstakes that will make real difference in 3 lucky winner's lives.

Participants will also learn details on a suite of Union Plus student discounts (from college test prep to textbook discounts) and the Union Plus Scholarship program.

Help if you don’t know your union

Your union membership dictates which Union Plus benefits you are eligible to use.

  1. What your national union’s name (not just your local number)? Scroll through the list we have to see if you recognize your union.
  2. What type of work do you do (select your occupation)?
  3. Do you have a union member card or union publication/letter that shows the name of your union? Find something with the name of your union, not just a local number.
  4. Is there a shop steward or work colleague you can ask what the name of your union is? You can even ask your human resources department to tell you the full name of your union?
  5. Do you have a Union Plus Credit Card? If so, the name and logo for your international union should appear on the front of the card.

Union Plus Credit Card

Union members are automatically eligible for their union's Union Plus benefits and you do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Cardholder in order to access your union's Union Plus benefits.

But - if you are a Union Plus Credit Cardholder, you could be eligible for additional discounts.
