Important Benefits Update
October 1, 2009 - 12:00pm EST

The New Health Care Contribution Retiree Communication will be mailed out to retiree's by October 9 with a response date of October 30th. The Retirees are being advised that action is required. The retiree /survivor must sign the authorization and return it to Benefits Link by October 30,2009 or health care coverage will be cancelled effective January 1, 2010.
Upon receipt of this information I talked to Sue in Benefits about my concerns. (1) Retirees on vacation for 6 months, (2)Should be sent registered mail so they know you received it . (3) It should have stickers on it saying (Urgent Response Required). Well none of the above seem to be a huge concern. I was advised there would be a window and they wouldn't be cutting people off January 1,2010 if some slipped through the cracks. About Mid November I will ask if I can get a list of retirees from Local 1498 who did not respond so that I could follow-up if possible. The retirees copy is bar coded and they need to approve the deduction from their pension cheque before Chrysler can take it since the Fund will now be administered by a Trust Company. My understanding for the salaried people still working is, we will be getting an Email advising us of the deduction.

In Solidarity,
