United is a participant in International SOS.
For retirees it only acts as a resource. You can call International SOS with a simple medical question or in an emergency. You, as an employee or retiree of United, get 24-hour expert advice and assistance – whether you want to arrange vaccinations before traveling; get medical advice when you’re abroad; or receive immediate care in a medical emergency. International SOS services are designed to help you with any medical, personal, travel or legal problems when you are traveling outside of your home country.
If you need medical or security advice or assistance, call them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:
|If calling from:||Call Assistance Center in:||At this number:|
|U.S. or Canada||Philadelphia, PA||1-800-523-6586

and Central America

or the Pacific Rim
These three cities will refer you to a regional facility nearest your location for medical advice, plus offer foreign language assistance.
