To The New England Teamsters Pension Fund Website
Message from the Board of Trustees:
The Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 was recently signed into law.
This law will have a significant impact on many multiemployer pension funds. It
is not possible to determine what impact, if any, the law will have on the New
England Teamsters & Trucking Industry Pension Fund until all of the regulations
are published and reviewed by our staff, attorneys and actuaries. Since
the regulations may not be published for another six months there is little the
Trustees can report at this time. As soon as a determination is made as to
what impact, if any, the law will have on this Fund and its participants and
retirees, the Trustees will post a statement on this website. Thank you
for your patience.

secure monthly pension to all vested participants for all of their
