Health and Welfare Plan Benefits
The Trustees currently provide a Medical, Dental and Vision Plan through Blue Cross of Idaho, and a prescription drug plan through OptumRx.
The Trust requires dependent re-enrollment annually each November for coverage for the next plan year. If your completed re-enrollment form is not received by the Trust office, dependents will lose coverage at the end of the current plan year.
Retirement with financial security is a goal for which most of us strive during our working lives. The Idaho Plumbers and Pipefitters Pension Plan was established effective June 1, 1963 to provide pension benefits to employees covered under the Plan, in order to provide another savings vehicle to help you enjoy your retirement.
A summary of the Pension Plan is explained in the Plan’s Summary Plan Description (“SPD”) as well as the summaries of material modifications. We urge you to read the SPD very carefully so that you will understand your pension benefits. We also encourage you to show the SPD to your family. It is important that they be aware of your retirement benefits and the survivor protection offered.
