    2019 NEBF Temporary Return to Work Amendment

    below for details. If you have any questions, contact Lisa at Local 8 at 419-666-8920.



    NEBF Early Retirement Benefits

    NEBF offers an Early Retirement Benefit with no reduction as long as you meet all four
    of the specific criteria listed below.

    1. You are Vested (5 or more years), and

    2. You are age 62, 63, or 64, and

    3. You are retired from the electrical industry, and

    4. You have worked for a Covered Employer for 300 or more hours in any one of the seven
    calendar years immediately before the month of your 62nd birthday.

    If you do not meet all four criteria listed above, there is a Reduced Early Retirement Benefit
    option. There is also a Normal Retirement Benefit option at no reduction at age 65.

    As a reminder, you can create an online account through www.nebf.com and
    receive your Benefit Estimate directly.

    Your specific circumstance may be different than others; please contact Lisa in the business
    office at 419-666-8920 with any questions regarding your NEBF retirement options.


    NEBF Status Letters Mailed to Members

    Recently, NEBF sent out status letters to members detailing hours and years of service. NEBF
    typically has a 3-4 month lag from the time hours are reported and the hours shown on your account.

    To check on your NEBF benefits, log onto their Online Benefits Portal at www.nebf.com/nebf
    and create an account; just keep in mind, all of your 2017 hours will not be recorded yet.

    Contact Lisa in the Business Office at 419-666-8920 if you have any questions.
