In response to COVID-19, the Fund Office closed temporarily in mid-March while initializing its business continuity plan. 

Currently, the Fund Office is fully operational with some staff working in the office and some staff working remotely. We do not currently anticipate any service delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic at this time.

The USW Benefit Funds are comprised of the following:

  • The PACE Industry Union-Management Pension Fund (PIUMPF)
  • The USW Industry 401(k) Fund
  • The USW HRA Fund

All three funds are Taft-Hartley Trust Funds that are governed by a Board of Trustees with both labor and management. All must be negotiated and must be included in the collective bargaining agreement.
