Free $3,000 AD&D Coverage for all Members!
Priority First FCU has partnered with American Income Life Insurance (AIL) to supply all members with a $3,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment Benefit. As a member, this coverage is currently effective and requires no additional action as you are already enrolled. AIL has been servicing working families for over 60 years and supplies them with more than just life insurance. You will be receiving mailings from AIL for other products and services they have to offer. If you are interested in obtaining additional coverages from AIL, please return the Beneficiary Card you will be receiving in the mail and an AIL representative will call you to set up an in-house appointment to review benefits, assign beneficiaries and review other products. If you do not want to meet with AIL, simply do not return the Beneficiary Card when you receive it in the mail. If you have any questions, contact your local credit union branch office.
