Question by jaymz023: What are the different Railroad Job Insurance Protection companies out there?
I was curious how many job insurance companies are out there for Railroad Employees. The coverage Im referring to in the insurance you pay for and collect when you get into trouble at work. I know of UTU, LECMPA, BRCF and CPA but are there any others?

(800) 514-0010 or (313) 962-1512
Don’t leave home without it………….
I reccommend this above the others. With the others, a committee evaluates the claim and decides if it is in fact payable. This, more like the old BLE insurance, is a true insurance.
Of course none of them will cover a speed volation or a violation of rule “G”.
I know that in the past, the others (UTU and BRCF) have have denied claims where similar infractions have occured in short time span. The thinking there is, well, Joe saw Bill get paid for his little contretemps, so Joe is just trying to milk the cow. CLAIM DENIED.
What do you think? Answer below!
