Re: Benefits for disabled carpenters
— by JPR JPR
 I received a letter yesterday stating that they revised the eligibility rules for anyone receiving disability Retiree Welfare Fund coverage. Now you must have a minimum of 15 vested credits and I only have 14 vested credits so I no longer meet the requirements for continued coverage.  I called the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA).  I asked if this was legal. It seems unfair. If I worked for a company where retirement age was 55 and after I retired could they call me up at age 60 and tell me to come back to work because retirement age is now 65? Of course not so how could they do this? The woman said she will check into it and get back to me in a few days. I think that all the disabled retirees should get together and get a lawyer. Maybe we could call up this is the firm to sue on behalf of retirees the last time
