Payments in the Event of Death

Each Participant entitled to benefits under the Plan should file a Beneficiary designation. The individual designated as Beneficiary will be the person to whom benefits will be paid in the event of a Participant’s death.

If the Participant has not named a Beneficiary or if the designated Beneficiary is deceased or cannot be located, the benefits will be paid to the person or persons entitled to the benefits under the law.


The Board of Trustees is obligated to recoup and recover any overpayments or payments otherwise incorrectly made to you or your beneficiary or any other parties.  In doing so, it has the discretion to pursue whatever legal means are available to it, including offsetting your future benefit payments from the Plan.
