Since the creation of UnitedAg’s non-profit Benefit Trust health care plan in 1983, we have provided health benefits to over 2,500,000 individuals and paid over $815,000,000 in health, prescription, dental, vision, and life claims to participants. UABT has saved employers millions of dollars in benefit costs since the Trust’s inception. These savings, coupled with our emphasis on customer service, the ability to see any doctor, any time, and quality health care, have made this plan the premier health benefit coverage available in agribusiness today.
The Agribusiness Education Foundation (AEF) provides financial assistance to advance the educational goals of UnitedAg members, their employees and dependents, and their employees’ dependents. Through the Agricultural Education Foundation, we have awarded over $1.3 million in scholarship monies to students in need of funding for college.
The UnitedAg Internship program will integrate a student's university study with real work experience with one of our UnitedAg members. It's an opportunity for the student to take what he/she learns in the classroom and use it in the "real world." Students will graduate with work experience in their own field, giving them a head start on their career. The internship program will be made available in several regions starting Summer of 2017.
