This President's Day, Protect Social Security and Medicare

  • 20 February 2023

Social Security and Medicare are under threat as a budget crisis looms in Congress. Despite pledges from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to protect these essential programs during upcoming negotiations, we shouldn't just take their word for it. Anti-worker lawmakers have been fighting to eliminate these programs for decades.

This President's Day, take a moment to write or call your representative’s office and tell them to PROTECT SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE during upcoming budget negotiations. Social Security and Medicare are not only a lifeline for seniors, but a promise to future generations that a dignified retirement is possible – if we continue to fight for it.

*If you purchase a new, qualifying union-assembled vehicle, you will receive a check for $100 within 6 to 8 weeks after purchase. (The rebate checks come from Union Plus and not from the dealer). Union Plus receives a monthly report on the sales activity from the program provider to verify that a rebate check should be sent to a member who purchased a qualifying vehicle. This process is automatic, there are no forms to complete. Keep a copy of your Union Plus Auto Buying referral email that can assist in researching your purchase if you think you qualified for a rebate but did not receive a check.

**Some benefits not available in NY or NH. Terms and conditions apply. Auto Deductible Reimbursement is provided by Voyager Indemnity Insurance Company, an Assurant company.
