- If you are an active union member, forward your completed pension application to your local union office for certification (not to the Plan Office). All other completed applications should be mailed directly to the Plan Office
- Be sure all signatures are completed; without all signatures your Pension Application cannot be processed
- Be sure to attach all required documents
- Be sure to complete your Beneficiary Designation
Important: If you retire on a Joint and Survivor Pension, further reduced so that it will “pop-up” to the original amount if your spouse should predecease you, you must contact the Plan Office if your spouse dies. Otherwise, your pension will not pop-up to the original amount (even though you paid for the protection) because the Plan will not have the needed information.
