Business Agent Brian Simpson, will be hosting a workshop designed to help our members better understand the IATSE benefits. The workshop will cover all three benefit accounts.
-Health and Welfare Fund
For every union day worked crew members receive benefits. These benefits are paid in addition to wages. They are sent to the IATSE National Benefits Fund where they are divided in to three accounts.
As many of you already know, you have the option to choose from four IATSE Health plans.
But, as many do not know:
-You can also manage how your Annuity Funds are invested.
-In times of Unemployment you can withdraw some/all of your Annuity Funds
-You can qualify for a Pension (god forbid you ever choose to retire)
This workshop will help you better understand how to access and manage your benefits accounts.
Please respond by email to BA, Brian Simpson, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are able to attend.
