Student Loan and Cancer Benefits¹ Exclusively for CTA Members

CTA understands the emotional and financial burden members may experience due to outstanding student loans or being out of work on a disability claim due to a Cancer diagnosis. That’s why CTA created and is providing the Student Loan Benefit and Cancer Benefit for CTA members. These benefits are available at no additional cost to CTA members enrolled in the CTA-endorsed Voluntary Disability insurance plan from Standard Insurance Company (The Standard).

Both benefits are paid in addition to the disability benefits from The Standard. Benefits are paid directly to CTA members to help pay for everyday expenses like student loans, rent/mortgage or child care.
