This section contains frequently asked questions, with answers, that are received by the Fund Office from Employers or Laborers (or their beneficiaries and dependents).

Please be aware that the answers provided in this section are only convenient summaries of the major provisions of an applicable benefit plan or the administration of benefits by the Fund Office.

This information may be amended, at any time, by official announcements or change notices from the Board of Trustees (mailed to eligible participants).
