Summer brings us some great things - barbecues, popsicles and summer fruit cobblers. And now, you can add the new Summer Benefit* from CTA to the list! This exclusive benefit gives you extra protection during the months of June and July – even if you’re not scheduled to work. It pays $500 a week if you become or continue to become Disabled during those months.

Exclusively offered to CTA members, Summer Benefit is included at no additional cost when enrolled in CTA-endorsed Voluntary Disability insurance. To learn more, visit

Summer Benefit is only payable during the calendar months of June and July, for up to two Benefit Years for each instance of qualifying Disability.
