ALL MEMBERS OF THE IAM MULTI-EMPLOYER PENSION PLAN (MEPP) (CANADA)
-PERSONAL CONTACT INFORMATION AND ADDRESS
Brothers and Sisters,
This bulletin is a reminder that all members of the IAMAW Multi-Employer Pension Plan (Canada)
(MEPP) should always ensure that their contact information and mailing address is up to date and
current with the plan administrator.
All registered pension plans in Canada have a legal obligation to regularly provide plan members with
certain information concerning the pension plan and their individual benefits. In order to fulfill this
obligation, the MEPP administrator requires correct contact information for all plan members.
Section 2.10 of the MEPP text stipulates that members’ accumulated benefits remain in the plan until
the expiration of a twenty-four (24) month non-contributory period. This means that former employees
of all participating employers will remain members of the MEPP and their pension benefit will remain
in the MEPP investment fund for a period of two (2) years since the last contribution was made to the
MEPP on their behalf.
It is vitally important that former members keep their contact information up to date so that the MEPP
administrator can arrange for the transfer or payment of their pension benefit upon the expiration of the
24 month non-contributory period.
Members can contact the MEPP administrator via the CONTACT link on the homepage of the MEPP
website homepage at http://www.iammepp.ca/ or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
