Retirement - Mid-America Carpenters Regional Council Benefit Funds

Applying for Benefits

Before applying for benefits, you should attend a Pre-Retirement Seminar. If you cannot attend in person, you can view the recording of the previous seminar to learn more about your pension benefit options, retiree health benefits, coordination with Medicare, withdrawal options under the Supplemental Retirement Plan and more. Then:

Request an application from the Retirement Benefits Department, and

Review the application with your spouse (if married), and

Request a meeting with a Retirement Benefits Representative to help you through the process and answer your questions, and

Send your completed application and necessary documents to the Fund Office no later than 90 days before your intended retirement date, and

Sit back, relax, and get ready to retire!
