Once you are approved for a Disability Pension, you may be required to verify annually that you are not earning more than the $35,000 annual earnings limit for Disability Pensioners. In addition, the Trustees may require you to provide proof of your continued entitlement to a Social Security disability benefit or medical evidence of your continued disability every five years and periodic compliance with the earnings limits. For more information, please contact the Fund Office.
You must provide actual income by requesting income verification from the Social Security Administration, with the Fund paying the required fee. If you fail to respond to the Trustees’ request for
disability information within 60 days of the first request, you may be disqualified for benefits until you provide disability verification. Any withheld pension payments will be paid in a lump sum without interest after you provide verification.
