WELCOME TO THE PENSION FUND

This site contains important information about the Pension Plan, how it works, forms and resources you’ll need. As a participant in the Fox Valley Laborers’ Pension Fund, you can earn a benefit that will provide you with a monthly income when you stop working at retirement age. This benefit is based on contributions made to the Pension Fund by your employer on your behalf. You pay nothing. All monthly benefits are in addition to Social Security benefits that your or your survivor(s) may receive.

If you are ready to retire, complete the application under Forms and Notices and return it to the Fund Office at least 60 days prior to the date you want your pension to begin. You are welcome to apply in person at the Fund Office by scheduling an appointment, or return the application by mail.

Retirees – Return to Work Rules

While in retirement, a retiree will receive a monthly benefit as long as you do not return to certain employment. The type of work you are not allowed to perform is called Disqualifying Employment and is further described in the Return to Work packet under Forms and Notices. If you return to work in Disqualifying Employment your monthly pension payments will be stopped. All of this information is explained in detail in the Retiree Return to Work Forms listed above. If you are considering returning to work you must immediately notify the Fund Office.
