    Depending on the program, your deduction will begin within the next 2 pay cycles. All programs that are available on the website will be paid by a single consolidated deduction shown as “VOLINS” on your paycheck.

    No. All programs that are available on the website will be paid by one consolidated deduction shown as “VOLINS” on your paycheck.

  10. Why did Corestream choose to present only Liberty Mutual, MetLife and Travelers coverage for the Auto Insurance Quoting Tool?
    These carriers underwent the task of obtaining state approval from each State Department of Insurance (DOI) to offer exclusive employee discounts.
  11. Why should I choose Liberty Mutual, MetLife or Travelers Auto and Home insurance?
    These carriers offer a discount that is not available to the general public. If you go directly to the carrier for a quote, they will not provide you with the same rate that you can get through Sandia Extras. There are a few exceptions to this rule, such as, if you are a long-time customer of theirs, but for the most part, you will save more through the Sandia Extras program.
  12. Who do I contact if I have a question or problem with a service or plan that I signed up for?
    Sandia Extras does not sell products or fulfill orders – the relationship formed is directly between you and the insurance carrier or vendor. Each insurance carrier or vendor has a customer service email and phone number. You may also contact Sandia Extras customer service for assistance at 1-855-514-8800 if you need to escalate.
