As a member of NATCA and Union Plus, you have access to educational assistance for your children at a cost well below what the average family would pay.

Classroom, online courses, and private tutoring are available for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, SAT subject tests, AP exams, GMAT, LSAT, GRE, DAT, OAT, and MCAT, at a cost of 15 percent to 60 percent less than standard fees.

Your children deserve all the resources available to them for their education. Call 1-888-243-7737, or go to the Union Plus website to find out just how easy and affordable it is to give your children a leg up with their education.


Cambridge Corner: ETF Basket
Can you name an investment that acts like a stock but looks like a mutual fund? If you said “exchange-traded funds” (ETFs), you’re right on the money. ETFs typically consist of a “basket” of securities that mirrors a particular market index. Like stocks, ETFs trade on an exchange and can be bought or sold throughout the trading day. Since most ETFs are designed to follow an index, fund managers generally make changes to their investment lineup only when the underlying index changes. Because the goal is to match the performance of the index, fund expenses tend to be low.
