Pension Plan

 
Participation

Purpose
This Article contains definitions to meet certain requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (otherwise referred to as ERISA). Once an Employee (as defined in Section 1.13) has become a Participant, he receives Credited Service and Benefit Units for employment before he became a Participant in accordance with the provisions of Article 6.

Participation
An Employee who works in Covered Employment shall become a Participant in the Plan on the July 1 or January 1 next following a twelve-consecutive-month period (which includes his first Hour of Service in Covered Employment) during which he accumulates at least 400 Hours of Service in Covered Employment. The 400-hour requirement may also be completed with Hours of Service in Continuous Non-Covered Employment with a Contributing Employer.

Termination of Participation
A Participant who incurs a One-Year Break in Service (defined in Section 6.06) shall cease to be a Participant as of the last day of the Calendar Year which constituted the One-Year Break in Service, unless he is a Pensioner or Vested Participant.

Reinstatement of Participation
An Employee who has lost his status as a Participant in accordance with Section 2.03 shall again become a Participant at such time as he accumulates at least 400 Hours of Service in Covered Employment during a twelve-consecutive-month period (which includes his first Hour of Service in Covered Employment) after the Plan Year during which participation terminated. The 400-hour requirement may also be completed with Hours of Service in Continuous Non-Covered Employment with a Contributing Employer.

References to specific section(s) of the Plan can be found in the Official Plan Document under Plan Documents on this website.
