TRUST ANNUAL FLEX FUND
Claim forms for those having funds available in the Annual Trust Flex Fund will be mailed to home addresses and should be received no later than May 4th. This should not be confused with the $200 special flex fund for which all Trust members are eligible.
The Annual Flex Fund is for those that had additional funding beyond that required to fund the basic Trust Fund Plans and had not used it for the buy-up of additional coverage. This primarily applies to those in terms and conditions, secretarial staff, and bus drivers. This does not apply to the NPUT members, except for some teachers employed less than half-time.
Claim forms should be forwarded to Preferred Group Plans for review and issuing of payments. Completed forms are be due by June 1, 2022.
