LECMPA Board Unanimously Extends Offer for Full Year of Discipline Days
- September 19, 2023
The LECMPA Board of Trustees met in August and unanimously agreed to extend the offer of immediate access to 365 discipline days to railroad members who carry our Nos. 12 and 16 policies. Just as the Association has always led the industry by offering railroaders the highest daily benefit, LECMPA was the first to offer railroaders a full year’s worth of benefits — 365 discipline days — beginning in 1998.
We were able to make this unprecedented offer, together with significant rate reductions, based on the pandemic’s effect on the railroad industry and overall discipline trends.
All current and new No. 12 (rail non-operating crafts) and No. 16 (rail operating crafts) policyholders will have immediate access to 365 discipline days of coverage.
All members in good standing with their union who meet eligibility requirements may increase their daily benefit and gain immediate access to 365 discipline days of coverage at the higher benefit level.
Industry-best Accidental Death coverage (for the member and beneficiary*) and Loyalty/Retirement Award are automatically included in all LECMPA policies.
LECMPA pays members a $100 referral through our Referral Program.
