The card must be completed and signed by the doctor and submitted to the Sick Committee for approval. You have 30 days from the date of the occurrence to file for benefits. The Sick Committee has authority to approve or disapprove a sick card. Any member applying for benefits, who has not paid their annual assessment or is not in good standing, shall be automatically denied. If rules of the Sick Fund are broken, or member has made a false report, he shall be ineligible for benefits for one year.

Payments will be made for the first week, if the member is continuously disabled and unable to work due to an illness or injury for five (5) consecutive days, provided he is continuously under the care of a Medical Doctor.

Had any life changes lately? 

Marriage, divorce or new baby? If so, you may need to change your beneficiary.  It is very important for you to keep your beneficiaries up-to-date.  A deceased Member without a current beneficiary on file causes extra expense for the Local and hardship on the families left behind. Beneficiaries should be updated periodically. The Local should have a form on file for for each member on the following benefits:

  1. Local 52 Death Assessment/ UA Burial Benefit form – ALL members.
  2. Life Insurance form - Only members currently covered under health insurance and retired members covered under life insurance only.
  3. Pension Plan – Members who are Vested in the defined contribution plan and receiving a quarterly statement from Charles Schwab. If you are married, the Annuity Waiver/Consent Form must be signed and notarized. Please read the Explanation carefully.
  4. National Pension Fund- contact the Fund at 1-800-638-7442 to receive forms.

Forms are available under Documents/Members.
