TESTing Our Compassion Transit Employee Support Team!

We need your help so that we can help you when you need it.

It’s no secret this job is hard on your body and mind and that the system we work in for providing support is not always on your side. TEST was created to add an extra safety net to give you and your family peace of mind in the event that you suffer a catastrophic illness or injury and when sick time, vacation time and reserves have been exhausted. TEST is working with TriMet as an extension of TriMet’s Catastrophic Leave Bank Program (HR-146.1-4) to help ensure support and give you more options how to donate.

TEST is not an insurance program like Aflac but a co-op of caring Transit Employees who want to offer you a lifeline when all else fails. TEST can help supplement your income so that you can focus on getting well and returning back to work. This is all based on available funds. Right now we have about 3,000 Transit Employees (union and non union) on TriMet properties. If we had 100% of our Transit Employees contribute through payroll deductions a mere $2.50 per pay period, less than the price of a cup of coffee once every two weeks, we would have $180,000.00 each year to “Make a Difference” for those in their time of need.

As you can see we do have the power in numbers. So help TEST help you by joining our family of Transit Employees who care by signing up for payroll deductions. You decide on the amount to contribute.

As of today our overall average (Tax Deductible) payroll deductions is a whopping $11.38 per pay period.
That’s why this program works, because of caring people like you.
So complete our team by joining today.
