Why should I get Term-to-70 Life Insurance?
Term-to-70 Life Insurance helps protect your family from the financial burden of an unexpected death. The costs of funeral arrangements and outstanding bills are high enough, not to mention the day-to-day bills (mortgage, car payment, college tuition, etc.) your family will face when you’re gone. And with today's rising costs and debt, many employer-sponsored life insurance plans may not provide enough coverage alone.Apply now
What makes the Union Plus plan different?
Union Plus Term-to-70 Life Insurance exclusively serves union members and their families. We’re able to provide specially arranged rates typically reserved only for large groups.
- Coverage without re-application, underwriting, or changes to your benefits until age 70 when you can convert to the Senior Life insurance plan without any medical questions.
- Provides a waiver of premium—which means, you don't have to make any payment—for up to 3 months during a union-sanctioned strike, involuntary layoff or lockout lasting 30 days or more and is subject to a 30-day waiting period. This is a union-member-only benefit.
- Unlike some other insurance administrators, Union Plus does not ask you to take a medical exam, depending on your answer to the health questions on the application, for coverage up to and including $200,000 in order to receive coverage.
- Provides you a 60-day review period with a satisfaction guarantee if you decide that this coverage is not right for you.
- Gives you a US-based, toll-free customer service support phone number.
Union Plus Term-to-70 Life Insurance rates
And, in case you missed it, last year Union Plus negotiated 12% lower premiums for the Union Plus Term-to-70 Life Insurance Plan. The reduced rates applied to all union members, including the thousands who had already purchased coverage. As a union member you are eligible for this valuable term life insurance at affordable rates not available to the general public.
The Term-to-70 Insurance Plan offers rates in 5-year age bands. All premiums are based on each person's smoking status and age at time of issuance and change when the person attains a new age bracket.
You are considered a non-smoker if you have not smoked cigarettes or cigars, or used a pipe, chewing tobacco, nicotine products or snuff during the 12 months before applying for insurance.
You select the amount of protection you want to purchase.
NOTE: PREMIUMS ARE PAID MONTHLY.
*Rates for age 65-69 are for renewal purposes only. Rates and benefits may be changed only on a class basis. Rates are based on the attained age of the insured person and increase as you enter each new age category. If your birthday is approaching, mail your completed application immediately to have it processed at the lower age category.
