Pension Plan

 
USERRA of 1994

Military Credit for Non-Working Periods After the Contribution Date. Under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 a Participant shall be credited with Years of Credited Service, Benefit Units and benefit accruals for periods of absence from Covered Employment due to qualifying service in any of the Armed Forces of the United States, provided the Participant returns to seek and ultimately obtains work in Covered Employment within the period during which he or she retains reemployment rights under Federal law. Years of Credited Service, Benefit Units and benefit accruals shall be credited for such qualifying military service based on the average number of hours worked in a week by the Participant during the twelve-month period immediately preceding such military service but not less than 30 hours per week for such military service.

If a Participant dies or becomes totally and permanently disabled, as determined under Section 3.08 of the Plan, while performing qualified military service on or after January 1, 2009, the Participant will be treated as if employment had been resumed the day prior to the death or disabling event and terminated on the actual date of the death or disability for benefit accrual purposes. The amount of accrued benefits will be based on the 12-month period of employment immediately prior to the qualified military service or the actual length or continuous employment if less than 12 months on reasonably equivalent terms to all military members who are on active duty.

In order to secure Credited Service, Benefit Units and benefit accruals for periods of military service, the Participant must give such information and proof concerning such military service as the Trustees may, in their sole discretion, determine.

Benefit if Death Occurs During Qualified Military Service. If a Participant dies while performing qualified military service on or after January 1, 2007, the survivors of the Participant are entitled to any additional benefits (other than benefit accruals relating to the period of qualified military service, except as provided under Section 6.06) provided under the Plan had the Participant resumed employment and then terminated employment on account of death.

References to specific section(s) of the Plan can be found in the Official Plan Document under Plan Documents on this website.
