MCL Members-Only Benefits


Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Check your mailbox – by now you should have received, or will soon receive, your brand new Midwest Coalition of Labor (MCL) Benefits Book.

As a member or retiree in good standing with the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters, you and your family are eligible to take advantage of additional benefits we have secured for you through our partnership with the MCL, which represents more than 140,000 working men and women across the Midwest. Our ability to provide these benefits to you at no cost is the result of a coalition of unions that we have built and our collective purchasing power to drive down prices from benefit providers.

The MCL continues to provide valuable benefits including: Supplemental Life Insurance, Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance, Roadside Assistance, and Legal Services. In addition, new benefits offered this year include:

Critical Illness Insurance, Accident Insurance, Perkspot Discount Program, Social Security Disability, Tax Preparation and Free College!

The enrollment period for Supplemental Life Insurance, Supplemental AD&D Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, and Accident Insurance runs Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. To enroll, visit:

Also, when signing up for the free college program at, please select MCL from the drop-down menu when it asks your union affiliation.
