Note From the President -- Business items

AFA members, as we approach the Christmas and Hanukkah seasons, we all should consider gifting a membership in AFA for your spouse, children, grandchildren, or friends. There’s no better way to support the Air Force, in these troubling times, than helping us help them. You can do this online at:

Secondly, the end of the year is a good time to consider your financial portfolio and determine if you have enough insurance coverage. AFA is pleased to offer high quality products from MetLife and from USAA to complete your positive financial picture.

AFA insurance products are clearly the most popular of all of the Member Benefit programs. And for good reason. AFA term life insurance policies contain no war clause so acts of war and terrorism are covered. Flying personnel are covered at the same premium and coverage amounts as the rest of the group.

Level Term Life Insurance - Members under age 65 may apply for $25,000 of level term life insurance for as little as $1.04 per month (for ages 20-29), up to $19.95 (for ages 60-64). You may purchase coverage in units of $25,000; up to a maximum of $300,000. AFA’s group life insurance programs are underwritten by MetLife, a strong partner of AFA for many years.

Accidental Death Insurance – All AFA Members are automatically preapproved for Accidental Death insurance, regardless of age or health. AFA’s MetLife policy is unique because coverage never decreases (and premiums don’t increase) when you reach a certain age. You may continue the coverage indefinitely at the same low premiums as the rest of the group.

Dental Insurance – Members have been extremely satisfied with the MetLife Dental Insurance coverageprovided to Members. You’ll have the freedom to visit any dentist and can be covered for preventive, basic and complex procedures.

Visit for information and applications for AFA/MetLife insurance programs.

Group Legal Services - AFA’s group legal services is provided by Hyatt Legal, a MetLife company. Interested Members MUST ENROLL BY DEC 28th for calendar year 2012. Pay $211.80 and you, your spouse and eligible dependent children are covered for many legal services throughout the year. Visit for full details and to enroll. I’ve heard praises from former JAGs that they used and liked the service they received under this program.

AFA/USAA Rewards™ World MasterCard® - AFA’s credit card is issued by USAA. Get a 0% intro APR for 12 months. After that, APRs are as low as 10.9%(remove a space here). Choose from 9 exclusive AFA card designs including the Air Force Memorial, the Honor Guard, a variety of aircraft, satellites and missiles. All AFA Members are eligible to apply for the AFA Rewards MasterCard, whether or not you are eligible for USAA membership. Visit

For your consideration.
