Membership Benefits

Local 49 is proud to offer membership benefits through the Midwest Coalition of Labor that are available to all active, dues-paying Local 49 members in good standing, including a death benefit, life insurance options, roadside assistance and more.

The death benefit is increasing to $10,000 as of July 1, 2023, and there’s an additional $2,500 accidental death benefit. As an active, dues paying member, you become eligible on day one of Local 49 membership, and there is no additional cost and no need to enroll.

You can also purchase up to $300,000 of additional life insurance without a physical exam. Watch for information about open enrollment for members interested in purchasing additional life insurance at a discounted group rate.

Other benefits include: free roadside assistance, discounted legal services, discounted tax preparation services, retail discounts and other cost saving programs. More information can be found online at

We are always looking for ways to improve your membership experience and we will continue to add benefits whenever we can. Thank you for your service to Local 49, we are more than 14,000 strong, and together we will continue to prosper.
