The lifetime maximum benefit for Infertility Services increases from $10,000 to $60,000 for services rendered on or after July 1, 2022. Active Plan Participants who used any or all of the $10,000 maximum prior to July 1, 2022 are entitled to additional benefits not to exceed $60,000 per lifetime. This benefit is not available for dependent children.

Increase Short Term Disability Payment for Active Members

The weekly Short Term Disability (STD) payment increases from $450 per week to $550 per week beginning July 1, 2022. Payment made for a portion of or the entire week which includes the day of July 1, 2022 will be prorated accordingly.

New Tax Withholding Guidance for Pensioners

The IRS has issued new tax withholding tables. The new tax tables have been applied to the May 1, 2022 pension payments. This means that the amount of taxes withheld from pension payments went down, resulting in a higher net pension payment amount. To view the new amount of tax withheld from the pension payment, visit the Participant Portal.
