Benefits Spotlight: Why Go It Alone?
Support. It’s what being in a union is all about. Many of us face problems with our medical certificates throughout our career. Have you ever wanted to just get some straight answers from a doctor about your case BEFORE making that terrible call to the Regional Flight Surgeon? You can!

NATCA has created an opportunity for its members to obtain 100-percent CONFIDENTIAL medical advice and counseling from the Aviation Medical Advisory Service (AMAS). Before you gasp at the thought of yet another medical expense, it is absolutely free to you! If you are currently going through a situation with your medical, don’t go it alone.

Go to www.aviationmedicine.com for more information and to begin the process.


Cambridge Corner: Think Big
Getting a tax refund? Put it to good use. Using your refund to improve your financial situation can offer long-term benefits. Here are several ways that “extra” money can help you become more financially secure.

  • Boost your emergency fund: Having cash for unexpected expenses can keep you from charging repairs and other costs on a high-interest credit card. Don’t have an emergency fund? Use your refund to start one.
  • Reduce your debt: Paying off loans or credit card balances will cut your interest expense and leave you with more money for other things. Eliminating debt should be a priority.
  • Invest more: Adding to your retirement portfolio can help you get to your goal. Look for asset classes that may be underrepresented to round out your holdings.
  • Pump up the college coffers: Putting extra cash in your child’s college savings account can help you prepare for future higher education expenses.
