Trauma Coverage for AFT members

AFT members work hard—now more than ever—to educate, heal, help and serve our communities. Sometimes our own stress is compounded by a personal or workplace trauma; still, we struggle to be fully present for others. Now the AFT is offering a new, free benefit—Trauma Coverage—to provide help and healing for our members, whenever needed, wherever a member may be.

These AFT-paid trauma counseling sessions with highly trained therapists are completely private and set up to take advantage of the latest communication technologies—phone, text, video and even artificial intelligence. They are free and available to all active working members, including those on leave status. The broad list of covered injuries is both work-related and beyond, including:

24/7:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Mass shootings/terrorist acts
  • Major disaster

At work:

  • Bullied, harassed or threatened
  • Traumatized by witnessing a violent incident
  • Infection by contagious disease
  • Secondary trauma
