About The Plan

The Transit Employees’ Health & Welfare Plan was created in 1954 to provide healthcare benefits to members of ATU Local 689 and their eligible family members. The Health & Welfare plan offers a comprehensive package of benefits that includes medical, prescription drug, dental, vision, life and accident, and long-term and short-term disability insurance.

The Plan is administered by a Board of Trustees according to the terms of a collective bargaining agreement, the governing trust agreement and applicable law. The Board oversees the Plan’s assets and makes plan design recommendations and decisions about the benefits offered.
