A poster describing the AIL member benefits.

The SGEU Community Services Sector has a no-cost Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefit through American Income Life Insurance Company (AIL in Canada). This benefit covers all members in the Crown Sector, as well as added benefit coverage for spouses/partners and dependent children under the age of 19.

Members who return the response card will be contacted by an AIL representative to arrange a convenient time to deliver the no-cost benefits and explain additional supplemental insurance programs that are available to the member. Read FAQs about the AIL member benefits.

AIL, in business for over 25 years in Canada, is a 100% union insurance company dedicated to working families.
