Annual Statement Required from Pension Recipients

With your February 2020 pension check, you received an Annual Statement that needs to be completed and sent back to the Fund Office by May 15, 2020. Pensioners with direct deposit received a separate mailing containing the Annual Statement form. This form is sent every year to verify you received all of your pension checks from the prior year, to verify your mailing address, to update your file with any new information, and to verify that you are not working in any employment prohibited by the Plan rules. A Summary About the Kinds of Work Not Allowed is also sent every year and is included with this mailing.

Instructions for completing the Annual Statement follow:

  • Section A: must be completed.
  • Section B: if you checked ‘AGREE’ for all 3 statements in Section A, do not complete.
    If you did not ‘AGREE’ with any of 3 statements in Section A, then complete only the portion(s) of Section B related to the Section A statement(s) you did not ‘AGREE’ with.
  • Section C: you must sign this form, and your signature must be notarized by a Notary Public. The Fund Office has a notary on staff if you would like to come in to complete the form. Valid photo identification is required. Read more...
