YOU’VE GOT MAIL!

OR NOT!

YOU'VE GOT MAIL
There’s nothing worse than trying to reach out to one of your family members or friends, but realizing you don’t have their current email, phone, or mailing address. When it comes to our union family, having accurate contact information is just as important.
 
That’s why AFGE members voted at the 2015 National Convention to make January “Data Update Month.” And this year, when you update your profile with your contact information, you’ll be put in a drawing for AFGE swag – and maybe even a brand new TV. 
 
To kickoff 2017, we’re asking every member of the AFGE family to take a couple minutes to update their contact information so we can mobilize members and spring into action when the time comes.  
 
When you update your profile, you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a brand new AFGE coffee mug. Each week up to 5 names will be drawn and winners will be announced on Facebook. To keep up with weekly drawings and to see if you’re the lucky winner, follow AFGE on Facebook. 
 
The Deadline for updating your information is January 31st, so don’t delay. Need Help? Contact us at comments@afge.org.

Where is the Money?

October 3rd, 2016 | Posted by admin in Benefits | News - (0 Comments)

Feds, Retirees to Pay 6.2% More in Health Insurance Premiums

Federal employees and retirees will pay 6.2% more on average for health insurance premiums next year. This unacceptably high increase will hit millions of Americans in the pocketbook, making coverage less and less affordable and will cause many to drop coverage.

“Like most other Americans, federal employees and retirees have seen their standard of living decline due to stagnant incomes and cost increases for basic goods and services,” AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. said. “This is an unacceptably high increase that will force many families to make difficult decisions about how to pay their bills.”

While employees enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program will pay 6.2% more for their insurance premiums starting in January, the government’s share of those premiums will increase just 3.7%, according to the Office of Personnel Management.

Voting has already started in a scattering of locations.

Here’s when early voting begins in a few states.

Illinois — Sept. 29 to Nov. 7. Starting Sept. 29, voters can only cast their ballots at their local election authority or a temporary location, but early voting expands to permanent polling places starting Oct. 24.

Indiana — Oct. 12. Early voting starts at the local county election board office or another designated location, but with an excuse, voters can cast a ballot by mail.

Michigan — There is no early voting in Michigan, as voters require a state-approved excuse to vote absentee.

Minnesota — Sept. 23

Ohio — Oct. 12.

Wisconsin — Early voting opening dates are set by the county/municipality. Wisconsin Rapids began voting Sept. 19.
