Coverage for you and your Dependents will end if contributions needed to maintain your eligibility are not made on your behalf, Your Initial Eligibility. You may be eligible to continue coverage by electing COBRA Continuation Coverage and making the necessary self-payments for such coverage by the due date (see Continuation of Health Benefits).
If you retire, you may be eligible for Retiree coverage. You should refer to the Summary Plan Description/Plan Document for the Sheet Metal Workers’ Welfare Plan for Retirees for information about Retiree eligibility. Contact the Fund Office for a copy of that booklet.
