How to enroll in an APWU Health Plan if you are an employee of the U.S. Postal Service

Bargaining unit employees

All active Postal Service employees who are in the APWU bargaining unit must become dues-paying members of the APWU, except where exempt by law. You will be billed directly by the union after you enroll in your health plan.

Outside of the bargaining unit

Postal Service employees in non-APWU bargaining units (letter carriers, mail handlers, rural carriers) may enroll in an APWU Health Plan by becoming an Associate Member of the union for only $35. It's the smartest $35 you'll ever spend!

Two ways to enroll

Postal employees can enroll by fax or website. Make sure you have your employee identification number and the USPS PIN before you start the process.
