LIVONIA, Mich. (3/19/13)--Discount provider Invest in America has added roadside assistance provider Credit Union Auto Club as its newest partner.

Invest in America is administered by CU Solutions Group, a subsidiary of the Michigan Credit Union League. Members nationwide receive savings on products and services offered by partnering U.S. companies, including General Motors.

Credit Union Auto Club offers roadside assistance services and other benefits exclusively to credit union members, MCUL said.

Credit unions can earn marketing reimbursements when they offer Credit Union Auto Club to their members. Services offered include emergency roadside assistance, fuel delivery, flat tire repair reimbursement, emergency lockout and emergency ambulance expense, traffic court defense and legal fees related to traffic accidents.

Other Invest in America partners include Sprint, Intuit's TurboTax, Dell and DIRECTV, MCUL said.

 Permanent link
MADISON, Wis. (3/19/13)--CUNA Mutual Group and its new health-care reform-education partner, Digital Benefit Advisors, will host a free webinar to help credit unions navigate changes created by the Affordable Care Act.

Brad Pricer, senior manager, CUNA Mutual Group employee benefits, and Annette Bechtold, senior vice president, operations and strategic development for DBA, will present "Health Care Reform--Preparing for the New Normal," at 10 a.m. CT April 3 .

"Health care reform is here to stay following the Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act and the last presidential election," Pricer said. "Credit unions need to act now to be ready for changes taking effect in 2013 and 2014 to ensure their health plans are in compliance."

The hour-long webinar describes how the Affordable Care Act has changed the benefits marketplace. Participants will learn if they are adequately planning long-term health care strategies. The session also will explore the ramifications for credit unions that stop offering coverage and their ability to attract and retain talent.

CUNA Mutual Group and DBA announced in February they were partnering to provide resources, expertise and education to help credit unions navigate the complexities of the Affordable Care Act and employee benefits strategy.
