IPF Serves Participant Veterans - (11/20/2008)

The IPF Board of Trustees recognizes the sacrifices made by those serving their country and extends those in Qualified Military Service all rights granted under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 as follows:

“The credit to be provided for each week of such absence shall be provided if the Participant returns to employment requiring contributions to the Fund…An eligible Participant shall be credited with hours based upon the average hours he worked under the collective bargaining agreement between his Local Union and the Employers participating in the Plan in the 36 months preceding his period of Qualified Military Service. If he had been a Participant for fewer than 36 months prior to his period of Qualified Military Service, the monthly average will be calculated using such fewer number of months.”

Similar provisions are also available under the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Act for veterans of the Persian Gulf Crisis (1990-1991). IPF participant veterans must provide the Fund office with a copy of their Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214) to be covered by these provisions.
