  • No. With the move to Sustainable Income Benefits in 2017, the proposed amount in the previous two TA’s is sufficient to keep the plan financially healthy.
  • If projections are met, the plan should be fully funded in 2027.
  • The trustees are bound by federal law to make responsible financial decisions for the fund. Trustees cannot promise to, nor would we want them to, ignore a reallocation of funds if necessary. Keeping the plan properly funded means we keep our promise of a secure retirement to all our members.
