Insurance scam alert for HEU members
Some HEU members have recently been approached by individuals identifying themselves as insurance representatives endorsed by the union.
In one case, an individual claimed that her company had taken over the HEU death benefits program and was updating personal information on members.
In another case, an individual posing as an insurance representative claimed to be operating with the endorsement of the HEU and other unions. He even had an album of photos of trade union leaders as “proof.”
Please be aware that the union has not contracted with any insurance company to sell insurance to members. And the union continues to be the sole administrator of the HEU death benefits program.
Life insurance benefits negotiated as part of your collective agreement will be administered by the payroll or human resources department at your workplace.
HEU is taking steps to end this fraudulent activity.
