Local 14 Members:
With the possibility of some people seeking early retirement, one of the items of concern is having to leave behind your life insurance. Cutoff is OCT 15th for GUARANTEED ISSUE for Techs and Spouses. After OCT 15th, regular application process. The prospect of obtaining life insurance on your own might be of concern due to pre-existing conditions and weight issues. If you are insulin dependent diabetic or have recently had a major health event, then getting life insurance once you leave AMFA and the airline, it would not be possible outside Group Guaranteed Issue life insurance.
