File a Claim
Filing a claim can be complex, but we’re here to help you every step of the way. At Union One, we’ll assign a dedicated Claims Advocate to guide you through the process. While your Claims Advocate doesn’t have the authority to approve or deny your claim, they are committed to assisting you so that your claim is handled efficiently and accurately.
Your Claims Advocate will be your main point of contact. If the insurance carrier’s agents request information or documentation, please send it to your Claims Advocate first. They will forward it on, ensuring a seamless process.

A $1 technology fee is included in all listed monthly costs for the following coverages: Short-Term Disability, Long-Term Disability, Member Life, and Spouse Life.
IMPORTANT: The monthly cost for coverage is based on your age at the start of the coverage and will rise on the policy anniversary date after you move into a new age bracket. This benefits guide is tailored for Members aged 18-79. If you depart from the IBT, opt out of paying dues, or retire, you must notify the Teamsters VIP+ administrative office at (224) 770-5304.
