We've got your back!

Have you been laid off?  Are you facing a stack of unpaid medical bills?  Are you experiencing financial hardship due to a FEMA natural disaster? During tough economic times, union members in need of financial assistance should know about these programs from Union Plus. We've got your back!

During tough economic times, union members needing financial assistance should check out all that Union Plus has to offer including Union Plus assistance grants that don't need to be repaid. 

Some assistance programs are open to all union members and retirees.  Others are for union workers and their families participating in a Union Plus program such as the Union Plus Credit Card, Union Plus Life Insurance or the Union Plus Mortgage.


Whatever your financial hardship, Union Plus is here to help.

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.
