The Fund offers health care benefits to eligible retirees and their dependents as long as the Collective Bargaining Agreement between their Employer and their Union provides for such benefits. Future Collective Bargaining Agreements or amendments by the Board of Trustees may change or even eliminate retiree benefits for current or future retirees.
You can get more information about eligibility and the process for enrolling in retiree health benefits here.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RETIREES AND THEIR ENROLLED DEPENDENTS: Whether you are enrolled in the Indemnity PPO Medical Plan or an HMO, you must enroll in both Medicare Part A and Part B as soon as you are eligible or your out-of-pocket costs will be substantially higher. This requirement to enroll applies when you turn 65, and to everyone under age 65 who is or becomes eligible for Medicare due to a Social Security disability award or end-stage renal disease. Refer to the Retiree “Enrollment” section for details.
