Maternity Disability & Adoption Benefits Retro-active to January 2017 – LAA/LUS

The Company announced last month that beginning March 1st, 2017, it will be expanding the resources that are available for employees who may plan to become pregnant or adopt a child.

We are happy to announce that the Maternity Disability Coverage and Adoption Credits will be retro-active to January 1st, 2017. This is very good news for members who have given birth or adopted children since the beginning of the year, and who initially thought that they would not be able to take advantage of these new benefits.

This new benefit was the result of the hard work and collaborative efforts of our membership, APFA representatives, and the Company. Be assured that we will continue to work to attain more comprehensive benefits for all Flight Attendants who are or would like to become parents.

FAQ’s about the new maternity disability and adoption assistance plans are available on Jetnet.

We will continue to keep you updated as we receive more details about this new program, as well as how it will work in conjunction with our collective bargaining agreement.
