The Carpenters Combined Funds is a non-profit corporation formed in 1978 whose purpose is the general overall administration of carpenter benefit plans in Greater Pennsylvania. We receive money from your employers, maintain your individual work histories, calculate eligibility for benefits, send out benefit checks and/or receive applications for benefits, and handle virtually anything to do with any of your benefit plans.
Medical Plan Amendment (04-02-2020)
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and hardships facing our members, the Greater Pennsylvania Carpenters’ Medical Plan is being amended as follows:
- Active members who are eligible in the Plan on April 1, 2020 will receive coverage at no charge for the benefit quarter of July 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020. This credit will give our active eligible members the same level of coverage as they have April 1, 2020.
- Our quarterly bank charges, effective with the quarter starting October 1, 2020, will be reduced by 10%. The rates per quarter will $1,925 for core, $2,660 for standard and $3,580 for premium coverage. These lower rates will stay in effect until further notice.
- Our dollar bank maximum, currently $18,000, will be increased to $20,000 effective January 1, 2021 and $22,000 effective January 1, 2022.
We certainly hope that this pandemic ends soon. Be assured that the Trustees of the Plan will continue to evaluate the situation as time goes on.
