Through the process of collective bargaining, UFCW Local 247 has been successful in negotiating benefits for many of its members. If your employer is not listed below, know that you may be entitled to separate benefits covered by your employer, so we encourage you to review your collective agreement or contact your employer for details.

It’s always recommended that members contact their designated plan administrator before incurring in any expenses to ensure they’ll be covered. Enrollment or pre-registration may be required by some plans.

 

All benefit questions must be directed to your Plan Administrator.
