Get Ready—New HRA Credits Coming Your Way

On or about July 1 credits will be added to your Active Plan HRA.  The amount will be 20% of the contributions SASMI received for work you performed in 2023.

You can use these funds to pay for prescription drugs and allowable over-the-counter medical items for you, your spouse, and your eligible dependents if they are covered under your SMART health plan. 

The HRA can also be used to purchase eligible items from a participating online FSA vendor, such as the FSA Store at

The debit card won’t automatically be sent to you. You must visit the member portal and register for it.

Which Local is Benefitting the Most?

SASMI wants to ensure all members keep a close eye on their health and fitness. That’s why we offer the Annual Physical Benefit—a benefit designed to encourage members to get their yearly check-ups. If you’re eligible, you could receive $200 for your own physical exam, and $100 for covered family members (up to a $600 maximum per calendar year).

Local vs. Local

Is your local the healthiest of them all? We’re starting a little friendly competition in 2024. Although Local 265 is currently in the lead with 28% of participants applying for the benefit, don’t count your Local out. We’ll be tracking throughout the year, so get your physical, claim your reimbursement, and help your local win the honor of “Healthiest Local” by the end of 2024.
