recently lost job and filed a claim with RAC Benefits Plus to be told I did not quailfy. But according to the web site it does not have anything about you have to be on the job 6 months or more it simply reads as follows:

Involuntary Unemployment Payment Waiver This payment waiver benefit may help members with their rental payments in the event that they are laid off, fired or lose their job due to a company strike of labor dispute. If you become unemployed and qualify for a payment waiver, your rental payment(s) will be waived in the amount of, or up to; the limits listed below. The maximum payment waiver amount is the member's monthly rental payment(s) up to a maximum of $1,000 waiver of payments on all rental agreements combined or for four (4) consecutive months, whichever occurs first, per unemployment occurrence. Your account can become re-eligible 4 months after all previous waivers have been applied for a period of unemployment. The unemployment payment waiver plan applies to the first two (2) persons named on the rental agreement.

This is bogus! Just another way to take your money!

AUTHOR: Div 9 - (U.S.A.)

First let me say Im sorry you've been laid off, seems its a common occurance these days. There is only 2 stipulations missing from your post
1) must be employed 6 consecutive months prior to be laid off
2) work a minimum of 30 hours per week
this clearly should of been explained to you and maybe it was but most people simply only hear the highlights of the program, not the specifics. Also included in the Benefits plus Plan is reduced cost RX, visits to dentists, chiropractors, docotrs,
grocery coupons up to 500.00, waiver protection replacement, full 1 year paid out protection for all items.
It does work if the requirements are met and they really arn't that stringent.
