Beneficiary Card

One of the benefits you are entitled to as a Local 983 member is a $10,000 death benefit from DC 37. However, you must have a valid Beneficiary Card on file with the Union. Local 983 also provide an additional $10,000 death benefit for active members, but you must sign up and enroll for this separately. By filling out one Beneficiary Card, you are covered for both benefits. The DC 37 benefit is automatic upon a member's passing. To sign up for the Local 983 benefit, click here >>
