Dear fellow IHSS providers,
Together UDW caregivers negotiate better wages and benefits for our work, while also protecting our clients and loved ones by advocating for seniors and people with disabilities and improving the IHSS program. But there’s one more perk to being a member of UDW: our member benefits and discounts.
Did you know that if you took advantage of every UDW member benefit, your family could save over $2,400 this year?
Our low-cost dental plan can save caregivers up to $194.50 over more expensive dental coverage. The WellCard Health Discount Card can save a family of three on average $1,000 annually. A free accidental death and dismemberment policy through American Income Life will save you another $96, and our 15% AT&T discount can save you an average of $72 on your phone bill each year.
Free caregiving trainings like CPR and First Aid save us money while teaching us the tools we need to give our clients the quality care they deserve.
Start taking advantage of your member benefits today! Visit www.udwa.org/memberbenefits or call 1-800-621-5016 for more information.
