Accident Benefit Association - ABA

All members of the Tri County First Area Local of the APWU are automatically enrolled in the ABA Value Plan. The cost of this comes from a portion of the bi-weekly dues you pay as a member of the Tri County Local, APWU. This $0.53 gives you a cash benefit of $12 per day, 7 days a week for an on or off the job injury resulting from you being unable to perform your duties and go to work during your convalescence. Officers and Stewards are enrolled in the ABA Advantage Plan, which pays $24 per day. The cost is born by the local as long as the 1/2 meeting attendance requirement is made each year. All members may at their option enroll in the Advantage Plan, paying the additional premium cost to receive the additional monetary benefits. You may also enroll your spouse in this plan. For more information, contact Gail Ganiszewski, our ABA Administrator.
