General Information

Plan Identification Numbers

The Plan uses the Social Security Number (SSN) of the Participant, the Operating Engineers Identification Number (OEID) or the Operating Engineers Union Local 12 Register Number as an identification number for all transactions. All claims and correspondence that you send to the Fund Office should include one of these identification numbers. A missing identification number can significantly delay payment of your claims.

Change of Address
