2017 CCA Information

As bargaining continues during this extended period of negotiations, the terms and conditions of the 2011-2016 contract remain in effect. Any change in the status of contract negotiations will be posted at nalc.org and sent through the NALC Member App for smartphones via push notification.

If you are a CCA who has served 360 days (CCA or TE), you have three options:

  1. You can choose self-only or self & family coverage in the USPS Noncareer Plan and receive a $125 contribution to the premium every two weeks
  2. As a NALC member, you can choose to become a member and select self plus one or  self & family coverage (not self-only) from the NALC Consumer Driven Plan or Value Option Plan and receive the $125 bi-weekly contribution from USPS
  3. You can choose self-only, self plus one or self & family coverage in any plan offered through the FEHB Program, but receive no contribution toward premium costs.

If you have not completed a 360-day period of service, you have only one plan option:

  1. You can choose to enroll in USPS Noncareer plan (with either self-only or family coverage) and receive the $125 bi-weekly premium contribution from the Postal Service. However, if the NALC prevails in its dispute with the USPS, you may also have the option in the future to choose self & family coverage under either version of the NALC Consumer Driven Plan or Value Option Plan and receive the $125 bi-weekly contribution from USPS.
