UTLA Insurance Premiums

UTLA endorses several Vendors that offer a variety of policies.  Policy information is personal between the member and the Insurance. UTLA is only responsible for collecting deductions and sending them to the Insurance authorized by the member.

The below “Approved Vendors” have been authorized by the Treasurer of UTLA.

Eligible UTLA-Premium deductions through Payroll

 If at any point you wish to cancel one of your elected premiums from payroll, you must fill out the  Withdrawal from Premium Deductions through Payroll Form.


You never know when an unexpected illness or injury could leave you and your family with financial difficulties.  Health insurance can help, but you can still have deductibles, co-payments and other out-of-pocket expenses.

That’s where voluntary benefits come in.  Sometimes called supplemental insurance, voluntary benefits are designed to complement your health insurance and help provide extra financial protection. 

In addition, you’ll have access to the following:

  • KOFE- financial education through phone access to financial counselors, webinars and calculators
  • LawAssure- one year of access to legal document preparation
  • WellCard- a card that provides discounts on prescription drugs, discounts on medical and dental expenses, access to medical bill consultation and more
