Print Preview

Beginning today, June 15, American Maritime Officers members and applicants have access to enrollment for a customized package of self-paid optional and voluntary Aflac insurance policies at a group rate, developed at the request of AMO specifically for the benefit of the union's membership.

The 2022 open enrollment for voluntary member-paid insurance coverage will run for one month from June 15 to July 15. AMO members and applicants may receive text message updates as well as emails from an address ending in before and during this enrollment period. Below are instructions for those wishing to participate in open enrollment.

Customized voluntary insurance options include: Critical Illness Insurance, Accident Coverage Insurance, and Guaranteed Group Life Insurance. These customized self-paid insurance options are NOT benefits provided through AMO Plans. The AMO Plans offices will not be able to provide information about them.

Information regarding the group options is available on the AMO website and from benefit counselors:

As noted, none of these benefits are provided by AMO Plans. However, the customized group insurance options would not otherwise be commercially available to AMO members seeking similar coverage on an individual basis. Participation is optional for any AMO member or applicant and the union itself has no direct involvement in and receives no financial return from membership participation in these self-paid policies.

Separately, AMO members and applicants are also eligible to purchase an individual disability policy and life insurance from well-known carriers that have vast experience working with professional mariners. For more information about these options, contact Jacalyn Murray at (954) 689-9499 or .

Additional contact information regarding the supplemental policies is available on the AMO website.
