Short Term Disability Income Protection
AFGE Local 1647 is pleased to announce that we will now be doing a new open enrollment for our voluntary benefit Short Term Disability Income Protection. Basicaly, this policy is like insurance for your paycheck-if you are unable to work due to a qualifying accident or illness you can receive a tax free monthly check until you are able o return to work. This new policy protects your most important asset, your abilty to earn income that pays your bills and provides for your family.
Our disability specialists will be available the week of Sepetember 20-22 2016 in Cafe 2 and Cafe 4. Disability enrollers will be on site each day. We can also come to you, call our Disability Call Center to let someone know you are interested. Please call 800-733-7236 ext.1000 or 1002 to ask questions or enroll over the phone.
WE are getting noticed...
Hi guys-- I got a call today from the WH Domestic Policy Council staffer to find out why OPM is being flooded with letters from irate TYAD employees. They are using the public comment opportunity regarding the unification of Joint Base McGuire to ask why they're still having to deal with pay inequities. I know we are very late in the game, but these letters have unnerved them. So please encourage people to keep it up!
See you next week-

Everyday expenses are on the rise but your pay has not kept pace. You've paid your fair share and the proposed 1.6% pay increase for 2017 just won't cut it. That's why AFGE is leading the fight for a 5.3% catch-up wage adjustment.
