Health and Welfare Benefit Summaries

  • Eligibility

    The Vision Plan is available to all active and retired members and their eligible dependents.
  • Basic Benefit Description

    This benefit helps pay for annual vision examinations and for glasses and contact lenses, subject to the rules of the Plan.
