When you are first hired at John Abbott, you may become eligible to sign up for
our group insurance plans. They are an important part of our acting together
as a union to help take care of our fellow members and their families who
end up in the unfortunate position of needing assistance.
For some of these plans, you need to make decisions right away. You have 
31 days from the start of your first contract to sign up at Administrative 
Services without providing proof of insurability (no medical exam required 
or preconditions excluded).

The following group insurance plans are available for JACFA members and
their families:

More information is available clicking on the links at the top of the page or
