The UAW, despite being such a short acronym, actually stands for “the United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America”. Union members work in a variety of different sectors all across the US economy. Like many large, national organizations, they have teamed up with a major insurance company (in this case, United American), in order to offer affordable Medicare supplement policies and their UAW Medicare Plans to their members.

Financial Strength Ratings

It should be noted that the UAW itself, because it is not a proper insurance agency, does not have a financial strength rating. For the record, though, the insurance company which does underwrite their Medicare supplement policies, United American, has earned A+ ratings from both A.M. Best as well as Standard & Poor’s.
