CTA–Death & Dismemberment Policy News

Is Your CTA Death and Dismemberment Beneficiary Information Correct?

As an active CTA member, you are automatically eligible for benefits under the CTA Death & Dismemberment Plan. This plan is provided by the CTA Economic Benefits Trust and requires no premium payments from you. It provides up to a $2,000 death benefit, up to a $10,000 accident death & accidental dismemberment benefit, and a $50,000 occupational/association leader accidental death & accidental dismemberment benefit.

We strongly recommend that you register a beneficiary. By registering a beneficiary, you will have peace of mind knowing that proceeds will be paid according to your specifications. If you have not registered a beneficiary, or if you can’t remember whether you did, or you realize it’s time to update your beneficiary, please take a few minutes to do so online by following these steps:

1. Go to www.cta.org,
2. Sign in (registration is required for first-time users – please have your Membership ID number ready),
3. Click on “My Profile” (found in orange box near “You Are CTA”), and
4. Click on the “Update Beneficiaries” tab and complete fields.

If you have difficulty with this online process, contact the Member Benefits Department at 650-552-5200.
