“We have a safety net.”
“I’m thankful that I signed up for the CTA-endorsed disability plan with The Standard when I was hired. We planned to start our family, and I knew I wouldn’t receive income or state disability insurance during my medical leaves. I had to protect myself from my anticipated loss of salary. It was so nice during both of my maternity leaves, one lasting almost five months, to receive monthly checks, close to my regular paycheck amounts, from The Standard. We had a safety net in place when we needed it; we could devote energy to my pregnancy and our new babies rather than worrying about where to find money to cover our expenses when the paychecks stopped. I’ve maintained my disability insurance with The Standard because it provides me with the security of knowing how I’ll cover my expenses if I am disabled and unable to work.”

“I saved $900.”
“I’m a shopper - I’m always comparing insurance rates to ensure that I have the best deal. This year, I found that the CTA-endorsed auto and home insurance carrier, California Casualty, could beat my current carrier’s cost substantially, so I purchased full coverage for my car and home. I saved $900 per year! Added bonuses were obtaining California Casualty’s unique benefit provisions for educators and the assurance that CTA stands behind their program. I’m happy that CTA Member Benefits provides these benefits for us.”

“Rental car discounts.”
“I often hear positive comments about how members save money with CTA Member Benefit programs like the auto rental discount with Enterprise. I use many of the programs myself — The Standard, California Casualty, and Provident Credit Union. I know that the CTA endorsement means that the product and vendor have been vetted; and I can recommend CTA-endorsed products to my fellow members with confidence.”
