Annuity and Savings Fund

Through negotiations with the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters, your employer has agreed to contribute on your behalf to the Greater Pennsylvania Carpenters’ Annuity and Savings Fund. These contributions are held in an individual Account on your behalf, and you direct how your Account is invested. Your Account is payable upon your retirement, death, disability or termination of employment. In addition, in-service withdrawals are available for certain prior year contributions and in the event of your financial hardship.
