The IBEW has set the highest standards for the electrical industry.
IBEW locals have health and welfare plans with dependent coverage. These plans are available after you fulfill the minimun eligibility requirements.
Most IBEW Locals have one or more separate and distinct pension plans with eligibility running concurrently. There are two International pension plans that augment the Local's plan or plans. These plans are in addition to social security.
While working away from home, as an IBEW electrician, wherever you work in the US, you are entitled to reciprocity of your earned benefits. This means your benefits will be transferred to your home Local upon your request. You must sign up for the ERTS program thru the Everett Office.
