Testimonials

The SDA is always working at getting the best and safest conditions for you and if something goes wrong they are there for you.  


Joining the union is the next best thing to having a guardian angel by your side and you can count on that!!  


I think the question should be this:  Why should somebody not join the SDA? That list would be short.  


It’s peace of mind, it’s just like ringing a friend and knowing they are there for you plus they know all the answers.
