New AIL Benefits for You and Your Family

American Income Life has been in business for over 25 years in Canada and is a 100% union insurance company dedicated to working families.

The SGEU Health Sector has signed a group policy with American Income Life (AIL in Canada) to provide no-cost benefits to members in our sector.  The participation in this initiative provides the following:

  • Every member of the Health Sector has $4,000 of no-cost Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance. 
  • Members’ spouse/partner are also covered for $4,000
  • Dependent children under the age of 19 are covered for $1,000
  • Members that return the card (to designate a beneficiary) will also get the following no-cost benefits:
  • Option to increase the AD&D benefit to an additional $10,000 for a $2.00 premium the first year; $5.00 every year thereafter.
  • Eye wear discount card – Child Safe Kits – Family Information Guide.

There is also an opportunity for members to purchase additional supplemental insurance but this is absolutely optional.  Some members may participate and others may choose not to.

We were assured that there would be no high-pressure sales tactics utilized.  (Again, there is no obligation to purchase additional insurance.)  If a member is not comfortable having the AIL representative in their home, then arrangements can be made to meet with the agent in a public location close to their home.

Members are encouraged to fill in and submit a card in order to designate a beneficiary to the AD&D benefit.  Claims that are made payable to an estate, are oftentimes taxable.

If a member or their spouse/dependent child dies accidentally, contact is made with the AIL Public Relations Representative so a claim can be processed.  All AIL needs is a copy of the death certificate and proof it was an accident (coroner’s report, or in the case of a publicized accident, a copy of a news article that states the deceased name).  AIL will also get confirmation from the SGEU office confirming the deceased was a member of the SGEU Health Sector.  A cheque is usually available to the beneficiary/estate in 3 weeks.

SGEU Health Sector members are covered under this AD&D policy by virtue of being a memberMembers do not have to return the card to be covered with this benefit.  This initiative is seen as a positive opportunity for our members.  There are other sectors within the SGEU that are participating as well.
