  • This page serves as a one-stop shop for our members to look-up information pertaining to their healthcare coverage, benefits, or other healthcare-related matters.

    Our members do not all share the same type of coverage, so not everything on this page may apply to your specific railroad. When in doubt, call Railroad Enrollment and Eligibility Services at (800) 753-2692 or contact your Burlington System Division officers and staff.


    WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE ON A MEDICAL LEAVE OF ABSENCE

    LOSS OF BENEFITS AND COVERAGE FROM A PERSONAL LEAVE OF ABSENCE

    For our members covered under the National Health & Welfare Plan, there are circumstances (Personal Leave of Absence, self-furlough, etc.) that can result in you LOSING your healthcare coverage until you reestablish eligibility after your return to service. The letter linked above described this situation in more detail.


    CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS PLANS (EXTERNAL LINK)


    Each railroad is required to have a Critical Incident Stress Plan that provides for debriefing, counseling, guidance, and other appropriate support services to be offered to an employee affected by a critical incident.
    Railroad work is hazardous, unforgiving, and rail workers often encounter death or grievous injuries among themselves, their coworkers, or others during their careers. Critical incident Stress Plans provide resources for rail workers to find support if they've experienced trauma from such incidents.

    This website is a great resource for our members and their families to access information on all their scheduled benefits. Information and contacts for your health insurance, prescription coverage, dental, vision, supplemental sickness (through The Hartford), life insurance (through Met Life), retirement options, wellness, behavioral health, and more resources are all available through this website.
