AN IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR IBEW LOCAL 1245 MEMBERS:
In addition to PBF benefits outlined above, we wanted to clarify the eligibility for Local 1245’s new $25,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefits. Only members who are actively working and currently paying union dues are eligible for the AD&D benefits. If members are not paying dues due to layoff, the $2,500 death benefit will carry on for three months. If a member is off work due to disability or leave of absence, then they are covered for up to 12 months. However they must have worked (and paid dues to Local 1245) for at least one day to qualify for either of these extensions. Additionally, retirees qualify for a $1,000 death benefit as long as they are current on their “non-working” dues.
