Joint letter to Congress in support of H.R. 5981, which closes a gap in the law for survivor benefits in multiemployer plans (12/27/2012)

Thursday, December 27, 2012

The Pension Rights Center, the National Women's Law Center, and the National Coordinating Committee on Multiemployer Plans sent a letter [PDF] to every member of Congress, asking them to pass H.R. 5981 before the end of the current Congress. The bill closes a loophole that unfairly denies pension benefits to widows and widowers when multiemployer plans terminate.
