Unum: The Insurance You’d be Crazy to Pass Up
Having insurance grants peace of mind when the unexpected happens. The NATCA group long-term disability (LTD) program from Unum is the insurance that provides protection and peace of mind in the event you lose your medical or are disabled. Seattle TRACON (S46) member Jared Mike encourages all NATCA members to sign up for Unum during this open enrollment season:
“If you think you’re young and healthy, trust me, you still need Unum. I signed up for many years back and I thought that I would’ve never needed it. At the time, I was young and in the best shape of my life, and I would say I still am in great shape, just not so young. Our job as air traffic controllers is very demanding and if you’re working six-day workweeks like I was for the last three and a half years, it’s even more [demanding]. The toll can sneak up on you at any time without you knowing it. I received my first payment after the 90-day waiting period. With a 20 percent loss in pay from the OT (overtime), Sunday pay, and shift differentials, I’m able to receive the full benefit.
“My father who sold long-term disability told me at the time that he had never seen a plan as good as what NATCA and Unum offer, and said I’d be crazy to pass this up.
“My advice to you: Get Unum!”
