Plan Participation

Being a Plan Participant entitles you to receive certain documents explaining the Plan and reports dealing with the Plan’s operation.  The following section explains the requirements for plan participation.

9.  How do I become a Participant in the Plan?

The way in which you become a Participant in the Plan is to work at least 250 hours during a twelve month period.  You will become a Participant in the Plan on the first day following the working of such hours, or at the beginning of the calendar year in which you first complete 250 hours.

10. Can my participation in the Plan ever stop?

Yes.  If you break your service when you are not vested, your participation in the Plan will stop.  Your participation will also stop in the event of your death or retirement.  The rules regarding a break-in-service can be found on Page 8 in this booklet.
