When should I contact the Welfare Fund?

You should contact us anytime something in your dynamic changes. Examples are, address, marriage, divorce, new child.. The Fund phone number is 412 363 2700 or use the contact us link.


Are there any specific benefits for which I will need to provide evidence that my dependent child is a full time student?

If you are a participant in a benefit plan which does not provide medical benefits and only provides for dental and vision coverage your dependent child’s eligibility is NOT automatically continued after your child attains age 19. However, when a dependent child attains age 19, the Fund Office will furnish a Student Verification Form which you will need to complete to continue to cover your child for dental and vision benefits until the child’s continued student status ends or the child attains age 25, whichever occurs first. The School Verification forms are issued in August for Fall enrollment and December for Spring enrollment.


When is Adult Dependent open enrollment?

Open enrollment for adult dependent coverage is December 1 – December 31st with coverage beginning January 1.


Where can I get information about my Pension?

Please contact the Pension Fund directly at (412)362-4200.

 


Will I receive a W2 for my disability payments?

No. The income is reported to your employer and included in your W2 from that employer.


How do I get information on my vision plan or request claim forms?

Beginning 1/1/2014, VBA is no longer issuing paper claim forms, just tell your doctor you are a VBA member and they can file a claim online. To see if you’re eligible for benefits, go to www.visionbenefits.com or call 412-881-5521.

 


Do I have to do wellness every year and who has to do it?

Yes. Wellness is required yearly to obtain maximum savings in the following year. The member and eligible spouse must complete both the physical and required blood work. This is to be completed by September 30 yearly.
