The Western Conference of Teamsters (WCT) Pension Plan was established in 1955 through collective bargaining between labor and management. Today your Plan is the largest area-wide multiemployer pension plan in the United States. It covers more than 230,000 active participants through pension agreements negotiated by local unions with about 5,200 employers in 13 Western states. Read more about the Trust.
Personal Benefit Statements are mailed in June to the homes of participants who worked 250 or more covered hours in the previous year and have a current address on file. If you did not receive one, contact your Area Administrative Office and verify your mailing address. Click here to see a sample statement.
If your covered employment is interrupted by a call to active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces and you meet certain other requirements, you may qualify to have your period of military service count as covered employment.
