Life insurance, legal help

UUP offers a new Group Life Insurance plan through MetLife that would provide members with $25,000 minimum coverage and supplemental coverage up to $1.2 million. A member’s spouse or domestic partner would receive $10,000 minimum coverage, while a dependent would get up to $10,000 in coverage.

Members would also have the option of contributing after-tax dollars to the policy, which would offer a competitive interest rate guaranteed not to be fall below a certain minimum. The account earns tax-deferred interest. There is a fee to take part in this plan.

A legal plan, offered by Hyatt Group Legal Serivces (MetLaw) , would provide UUP members with access to attorneys (more than 14,000 nationwide) that can help with everything from criminal matters and bankruptcy to adoption, mortgages and wills. Members would pay $15.75 per month (or $21.75 per month for a plan that includes their parents/in-laws), which can be deducted from payroll.
