> Retiree Health Benefit
The Fund offers coverage for its retired members under the Retiree Health Benefits Plan. If you retire on or after April 1, 1995, with a service, normal, early or disability pension and meet the Plan’s other eligibility requirements, you and your eligible dependents are eligible for the New England Carpenters Retiree Health Benefits Plan. There are three requirements:
- You have been eligible during five of the last ten coverage periods, have 3,000 hours in covered employment during the five-year period immediately prior to retirement, and be covered by the Plan in the period immediately preceding your application for retiree coverage.
- You must have no other group health insurance, including Medicare.
- You must share the cost of coverage with the Fund. Your monthly premiums may increase from time to time.
