What does “retirement” mean?

Prior to age 65, you will be considered “retired” if you withdraw completely and refrain from any work in employment of the type covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement regardless of the location of such employment or whether such employment is actually covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement.

After age 65, you will be considered “retired” if you withdraw and refrain from employment in excess of 39 hours in a calendar month in the same industry, in the same trade or craft, in the States of California and Nevada.

Generally speaking, your pension will not be paid during any month in which you work at the kind of job which is prohibited by the Plan. (See question 25 on for more information).
