In this issue, you will read about a fellow member who took advantage of her benefits to make healthy changes in her life. Althea Elliott, a Registered Nurse at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, who used her health benefits to get her family the care they need; her training benefits to earn an advanced degree; and our 1199SEIU Citizenship Program to become a U.S. citizen.
We want to help you protect your financial health as well, so we remind you of all the ways you can get information about—and even apply for—your pension benefit.
For those of you who have children, we include information on upcoming parenting seminars, as well as details on how to register for 2018 child-care benefits. We also encourage you to check out some of the online opportunities to enhance and upgrade your job skills and education through our Training and Employment Funds.
We hope you enjoy this issue of For Your Benefit. If you have any questions about your benefits, please call our Member Services Department at (646) 473-9200, and a representative will be happy to help you.
