Check your pension statements for Catastrophic Insurance
It has come to the UFOA’s attention that pension deductions for catastrophic insurance premiums to Mercer may not have taken effect after a member retired or may have stopped since a member’s pension was reclassified. All retired members are urged to review their quarterly pension statement to verify that catastrophic insurance premiums are being deducted. The pension deduction code for catastrophic insurance premiums on the pension statement is CHIP MISC. If premium payments are not being deducted from your pension, you should contact Mercer immediately at 1-800-503-9230, option 2 and make alternate payment arrangements to bring their account up to date. You may also request that Mercer resume the premium deductions through monthly pension deductions. The UFOA does not process pension deductions or catastrophic insurance premium payments to Mercer.

We always bring in interesting and informative speakers to address you on the issues at hand. See above, Leroy McGinnis from the UFA at a meeting last year. This past year we have had others speak about wills and trusts, health care, pension issues, upcoming events etc. Jimmy Hayhurst asks all to contribute to Building Homes for Heroes and the response is always positive for our disabled war vets.
See above, Jim Hayhurst addressing a packed house at our meeting in New Hyde Park at the Elk's Club; 901 Lakeville Road. Our other location is in Brooklyn at the K of C Hall; 3051 Nostrand Ave [corner of Quentin Road and Nostrand Ave] We begin at 8pm and enjoy food and beverages but most of all we enjoy hanging out with friends.
