UNUM Long-Term Disability Insurance
Last year, NATCA had a very successful open enrollment period for the NATCA/UNUM Long Term Disability Plan. This year, the NATCA Benefits Committee hopes to be just as successful with your help. The open enrollment period will run Feb. 1, 2016, through April 30, 2016.

ME + ONE
The committee has added an additional incentive plan designed especially for plan participants. If you are a current participant, please talk to and enroll one member who is not currently enrolled in the plan. All current participants who are successful will receive a $25 NATCA Store gift card.

Enrollment Incentive
The committee has also designed a new t-shirt that will be given to the first 500 members who sign up. They encourage you to enroll early, as the shirts are limited editions.

Early Enrollment Raffle
On the third day of Communicating For Safety (CFS), the committee will raffle off a new iPad. Each member that signs up from the beginning of the open enrollment period to the second day of CFS (March 22) will be entered into the raffle. Members do not have to be present at CFS to win.
