AFSCME Member Benefits

As an AFSCME member, you know you always have an advantage at the bargaining table. But did you also know your AFSCME membership can provide you with a big advantage when you shop?  Through the AFSCME Advantage Program, you can secure big discounts on everything from travel to cell phone service.

A FEW OF THE BENEFITS ARE LISTED BELOW; FOR THE COMPLETE ARRAY OF DISCOUNTED PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, including legal services and dental and vision discounts, see https://www.afscme.org/members/advantage

NOTE: For some AFSCME Advantage benefits, you may need your AFSCME membership number. (For others, you may not.)  This is the number on the membership card mailed to you from AFSCME International when you became a union member (not to be confused with the Weingarten Rights card mailed to you directly from Local 800). If you try to access one of the benefits and find that you need your member number but no longer have your card, please call AFSCME in Washington D.C., 202-429-1000, and ask for Member Services; they should have you on record as an AFSCME member (unless you recently joined), and you can request your number and that you be sent a new card. (Say you are a member of Local 800, and make sure they have your correct mailing address.) If there is some problem when you do this, then please contact us ([email protected]) and we will get the matter straightened out. Please let us know your current mailing address.

Free College

AFSCME Free College BenefitAFSCME Free College brings a degree within your reach. AFSCME and Eastern Gateway Community College are offering the chance to earn an online degree from an accredited school with no out-of-pocket expense. Family members can also take advantage of this benefit.

Eastern Gateway Community College is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, which is the gold standard for accreditation.  It is part of the University System of Ohio, and the Ohio standards and learning outcomes are set by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, which are similar to those in California.  An AA from OH is the same as an AA from CA.  (The only difference is the "automatic transfer” and/or articulation agreements that there may exist between schools, that make transfer easier for students in certain schools.  Also: a botany degree may not transfer, but English and psych and other core classes are generally transferred.  In addition, UC Berkeley, for example, may require a higher grade for equal transfer than another CA school, but the transfer is the same.  If students are thinking of later transferring to a four-year college, they are always encouraged to check with the school to which they think they might like to transfer so that they can fully understand what will be required. )
