Things to Remember...

  • Washington, D.C. is home to Ullico, a specialty insurance company exclusively serving the needs of America’s labor unions
  • Unfortunately, Ullico doesn’t offer any type of auto insurance at either the consumer or commercial levels
  • Although they do provide personal lines of insurance these products are generally offered through employers, trade organizations, or local union shops

Update: Ullico is currently in liquidation as of May 30, 2017.

Washington, D.C. is home to Ullico, a specialty insurance company exclusively serving the needs of America’s labor unions.

The company was formed in 1927 under the original name The Union Labor Life Insurance Company.

Ullico prides itself in its comprehensive knowledge of unions and workplace issues and strives to provide the best support to both unions and union employers.

Through their services, they provide extra insurance coverage that employers and employees would otherwise be left without.

Among the various insurance products that Ullico offers are life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment, short and long-term disability, supplemental medical, and union liability.

They’re also involved in alternative risk management and the issuance of surety bonds. Unfortunately, Ullico doesn’t offer any type of auto insurance at either the consumer or commercial levels.

They are strictly a specialty insurance company providing mostly supplemental products.

Ullico Captives

One means by which you might be able to get auto insurance through Ullico is in a captives situation.

Under a captives model, a trade organization, company, or other legal business entity can self-insure under the umbrella of a company like Ullico.

Therefore, it’s entirely possible for an unionized employer to set up a captives scenario in which individual employees are offered various types of insurance.

It’s not uncommon for such captives to offer their employees auto, home, life, and health insurance products.

Neither Ullico’s website nor literature specifically states the names of any captives or the products they offer.

Such information would be gleaned on an individual basis from companies who are part of the Ullico captives system.

You may be able to find out a little bit more about this by contacting Ullico at the address listed above.

Ullico Locations and Agents

As far as our research could uncover, Ullico’s only location worthy of note is their Washington, D.C. headquarters.

They may have smaller satellite offices around the country or representatives based at various client locations, but if so those addresses are not published any place we could find.

The most likely scenario is that all operations are conducted out of the Washington office.

Because of the unique nature of Ullico’s business, they also don’t appear to utilize local agents.

Although they do provide personal lines of insurance these products are generally offered through employers, trade organizations, or local union shops.

As such, there is no need for Ullico to utilize local, independent agents.

That notwithstanding, utilizing a network of independent agents would seem to violate the core principles of the union philosophy anyway.

Ullico Customer Service and Reviews

Detailed information about Ullico’s customer service is hard to come by. Their website is very sparse in terms of what it provides, and there appears to be no online customer service portal.

Initiating a customer service contact would most likely require that you write or call their Washington office.

If your employer is a union shop, you might be able to get in touch with Ullico via your local shop steward. Industry organizations may also have information on customer service that we were unable to uncover.

As for individual customer reviews, we could not find any for Ullico.

This is no surprise in that the nature of this company’s business doesn’t lend itself to customer reviews.

We know that labor unions, and those who support them, are very tight-knit family, making it unusual to see customer reviews on independent review websites.

In considering the quality of Ullico as a company it is fair to consider their A.M. Best rating of B+.

Ullico Career Opportunities

Ullico’s website does have a careers section that currently lists about half a dozen employment opportunities.

Since part of their mission is to ensure the best interests of union workers across America, Ullico claims to provide an ideal working environment and highly competitive salary and benefits to its workers.

Some of those benefits include:

  • Full health insurance
  • Generous paid time off
  • 401(k) plan

All of the company benefits are listed on the website.

Interested candidates may review the job listings for complete descriptions, requirements, and application instructions.

Whether or not more job openings will be available in future is hard to say, but the openings that currently exist are mostly in upper management.

Even though Ullico doesn’t provide individual auto insurance, you can still see auto insurance quotes online by entering your ZIP code now.
