The benefits below are administered by SEIU, the umbrella organization that CIR is a part of. For more details, see the links below or visit seiumb.org directly where you can sign up to access these benefits. *PLEASE NOTE: If you are a new member who recently signed up, it can take 4-6 weeks for these SEIU benefits to kick in as they are separate from CIR-specific benefits outlined above. Please wait until early August to sign up and try to access them, so SEIU can properly verify your membership status.
For additional questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-844-836-7348 Mon-Fri: 8 am – 8 pm & Sat: 9 am – 1 pm EST. If SEIU says they are unable to verify your membership status, it is possible the database has not been refreshed or that you did not sign up for CIR membership. Check back in a couple of weeks or confirm with your respective hospital organizer (CIR staffperson) that you are indeed a CIR member.
