Changes To Carpenters Welfare Fund


In an effort to crack down on members defrauding the Welfare Plan, the NYC District Council will no longer provide retiree health benefits for any member and their beneficiaries who defraud the Welfare Fund .

Effective April 1, 2008 any member who is determined, in accordance with the adjudication procedures adopted by the New York City District Council Of Carpenters, to have defrauded the Welfare Fund or aided and abetted another to defraud the fund shall be ineligible to receive retire health benefits.

Participants have the right to appeal a denial of benefits in accordance with the Welfare Plan appeal process

  1. I Hope they spend the same amount of time investigating BA's and Orginizers, as they investigate the Retired Workers.


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
