Help For Union Members And Their Families
Eligible union members facing financial hardship can turn to Union Plus programs:
- Have you been laid off?
- Worried about paying your bills?
- Do you have large, unpaid medical bills?
- Have you been on strike for more than 30 days?
- Have you become disabled within the last 12 months (and been out of work at least 90 days)?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above AND you participate in Union Plus programs - such as the Union Plus Credit Card, Teamster Privilege Credit Card Program, Union Plus Insurance and/or the Union Plus Mortgage program - you could be elible for special financial help.
