The AFT has arranged for all active, working and retired members* in good standing to have a $5,000 accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance policy from Federal Insurance Company, a member insurer of the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies. The AD&D benefit is included in your AFT local union membership, so you’re already covered.
Whether an accident resulting in a covered injury or loss of life happens at work or away, this AD&D insurance coverage pays you or your beneficiary a cash benefit.
Do you have a plan for retirement? At a recent CalSTRS workshop the presenter shared how many teachers' "plan" is to work until they can't stand it anymore and "hope" they had enough to retire on. Guess what? "Hope" is not a plan.
Be familiar with your CalSTRS defined benefit plan. Start by looking at your CalSTRS statement. Have you designated a beneficiary (Page 3)? What about the Defined Benefit Supplemental account listed in the statement? How will you designate this?
