Dear Participants and Stakeholders:

As we all monitor the Coronavirus pandemic and the daily updates from all of the governmental authorities, we wanted to update you regarding GCCIBT National Pension Fund operations in Illinois.

Please be advised that based on the “Stay at Home” order imposed by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker on Friday, March 20th, the Fund Office will remain closed through April 7th.  We will be monitoring the guidance and directives of governmental authorities and provide updates when appropriate.

It is important to note that:

• Pensioners receiving pension payments by Direct Deposit (electronic funds transfer - EFT) that are sent directly to a bank, should not be affected. Direct Deposit monthly pension payments will be processed in the normal course; 

• Pensioners receiving pension benefits by check with payments sent through the United States Postal Service might experience a delay in receipt of their payment. All efforts are being made to mail these checks out in a timely manner so that they arrive on-time;

• There will be a delay in processing pending pension applications based on the Governor's "Stay at Home" order. It is our intent to resume operations as soon as possible; 

• There will be a delay in processing any new bank changes requested by Pensioners receiving pension payments by Direct Deposit (electronic funds transfer - EFT). To prevent against fraud, we do not accept Direct Deposit (electronic funds transfer - EFT) bank changes by phone or in electronic form. All changes must be in writing to the Fund Office and must be signed by the pensioner, or someone with power of attorney.

Due to a high level of phone calls, we may not be able to respond to your calls for some time. We will respond to voice messages, emails and electronic messages from the Contact Us page of this website as soon as possible. If your call is answered by our voicemail system, please leave a message by slowly and clearly stating your full name, phone number, the last 4 digits of your social security number with a short message regarding the purpose of your call. Without this information, we will not be able to research your records and return your phone call. 

The Fund Office has procedures in place that will enable certain staff members to work remotely and continue performing some, but not all, of the Fund's administrative functions during this crisis. During these difficult times, we remain dedicated to maintaining our normal level of service but please understand that we are facing many unforeseen obstacles that are beyond our control. We ask for, and appreciate, your patience during this difficult time.

During this crisis we also ask that you please heed the advice and directives of all government authorities to keep you and your families safe.
