Welfare Notes - October 2006

October, 2006

Health Reminders

Moving from the summer into the fall and winter season, weather changes and a decrease in daylight hours puts many people into a less active state. It is important to your physical and mental health to continue good habits like walking and exercise.

It is also the time of the year to check with your doctor regarding immunizations that you will need in the upcoming flu season. You can also check with your pharmacy about scheduled immunizations that will be in your area.

Update Your Information

Active members please be sure to keep the SUP Welfare Plan information on file updated. Check with our office if you have not recently sent us a beneficiary form for your death benefit or Money Purchase Plan. Those members enrolled in the 401(k) plan should also keep updated beneficiary information on file for their 401(k) plan.

Pensioner’s Allowance

Invoices that state “This is not a bill” and proposed treatment plans are not adequate proof of loss for reimbursement under the Pensioner’s Annual Allowance. Please submit itemized bills that include the name of the patient, the name and address of the provider of services, the charge, and the date of services. Medicare explanations of benefits and Prescription bills with the above information are also acceptable.

E-mail Addresses
