The Fund Office may suspend benefit payments for your claims related to third-party Injury or illness until you return a signed Reimbursement Agreement to the Fund Office. The Fund Office may also suspend benefits or withhold future benefit payments if you refuse to provide information to the Fund Office or otherwise refuse to cooperate with the Fund Office.

The Fund Office may suspend all Welfare Benefit payments or withhold future benefit payments, regardless of the nature or source, if you receive a recovery and you either fail to report that recovery to the Fund Office, refuse to reimburse the Fund Office, or reject a settlement in accordance with the Plan’s Reimbursement guidelines. Benefits should recommence after the total amount of payments withheld equals the amount of recovery due the Fund under the Fund’s Reimbursement policies and procedures.
