Please be advised that Benserco, Inc. has been retained as the Third Party Administrator (TPA) for the SDC-League Pension and Health Funds.
As TPA, Benserco will be responsible for processing contributions from Employers, paying monthly benefits to pensioners, and participant recordkeeping including maintaining your Health Fund eligibility status and Pension credits. In addition, they will receive and record Health Fund premium payments including your 15% Participant Contributions, process Option B Medical Spending Account benefits, and administer COBRA.
While Benserco will serve as the SDC Pension and Health Funds’ TPA, I will continue to work as the Funds’ in-house Administrator and continue to provide service, support, and Member advocacy for you, our participants. I will also be available to attend Membership Meetings to educate and explain benefits to Members. Know that you may continue to contact me at any time with any questions you have regarding your entitlement to benefits through the Funds. As usual, you can contact me at (212) 869-8129 or by email at JEverson@SDCweb.org. I look forward to working with our new TPA to ensure that you continue to receive the highest level of service possible.
