SAMBA coverage mistakenly canceled for some CBP employees

The premiums for the SAMBA Employee Benevolent Fund recently increased ($39/year for $17,500 coverage and $78/year for $35,000 coverage) and some employees are having their membership terminated due to a clerical error.

Some people have received letters that look like the letter below, but everyone should check their Leave and Earning Statements to see how much is being pulled from each paycheck. If you still see $1.00 or $2.00, then the change was probably not processed correctly and you should contact SAMBA at 1-800-638-6589, Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm EST. You can also call that number to simply verify your status.
