The National IAM Benefit Trust Fund takes care of its participants with medical and prescription drug, dental and vision plans and many more benefits that allow us, and you to continue to be amazing. The main goal is to keep employees healthy by offering affordable, competitively priced health care plans that provide comprehensive coverage. One of the key features of the National IAM Benefit Trust Fund medical plans is that participants have the freedom to choose any provider they want, without needing a primary care physician or referrals for specialty care. Interest and needs evolve over your lifetime. Likewise, we evaluate our benefits to adapt them to the needs of our changing population. Take a moment to learn about the benefits available to you and your family.
For decades, the IAM National Pension Fund, IAM National 401(k) Fund, and National IAM Benefit Trust Fund, have provided important retirement and healthcare benefits to IAMAW members, working in a variety of career fields, and their families.
Understanding that the retirement path for every person is unique, we recognize that there are solid mile markers along the way that assist in the voyage. The purpose of our “Journey to Retirement” (JTR) magazine is to provide a description of important steps for plan participants to consider for staying healthy on their way to enjoying a well-deserved retirement, along with a brief by decade look at the history of the Funds.
Within JTR, you will experience articles discussing the importance of your benefits throughout your career, such as the value of preventive care and annual wellness exams for long term health, how to monitor and update your benefit information over time and plan for gaps between your eventual retirement benefits and your expenses, plus naming your beneficiaries, and how to protect your personal information from cybercrime.
We hope you find it informative and enjoyable. Thank you.
