Union Plus offers disaster relief

Qualifying union members may receive $500 grant

UNION MEMBERS WHO have been affected by spring or summer storms, flooding, or wildfires — and who have participated in the Union Plus credit card, mortgage, or insurance program for at least one year, in good standing — may be eligible for a $500 disaster relief grant. The money, which does not have to be repaid, is part of the Union SAFE programs.

Applicants must have experienced a significant income or property loss within the last six months as a result of a FEMA-declared natural disaster or emergency in counties designated by FEMA as qualifying for individual assistance. Documentation must be provided unless waived.

To apply for grants, Union Plus Credit Card holders should call 1-877-761-5028 to speak with a representative; Union Plus Mortgage and Union Plus Insurance holders should call 1-800-472-2005 to speak with a Union SAFE specialist.

Grants are also available to qualifying union members who have suffered losses due to Hurricane Irene.

In addition, disaster victims who participate in the Union Plus Auto Insurance and Mortgage programs may be eligible to receive payment extensions or other special help. Visit UnionPlus.org for more information.
