In response to COVID-19, the Fund Office is closed, with limited staff performing essential functions remotely. The Fund Office has activated its business continuity plan to continue to provide service to our participants and participating employers during this situation. Please see the Fund-specific information below.

Pension Fund – Pension payments will continue to be made as scheduled. Current payees may experience delays when updating an address or direct deposit information. Applications for benefits will continue to be processed but there may be some processing delays. 

USW 401(k) – Contributions are continuing to be processed daily.

USW HRA Fund – Claims are continuing to be reviewed. If the review cannot be completed in 30 days, the Fund will notify participants of the need to extend an additional 15 days.
