When filling out the inquiry form, it does ask for your local number which is your CSEA chapter number, and if you are applying for yourself, it does ask for your member id. Not sure of what your chapter number is or your member id number is, call CSEA Member Benefits at (866) 487-2732 or email memberbenefits@csea.com and we can assist you.
