Defined Benefit Pension Plan Benefit Tabs™

This is a summary of benefits and not a substitute for the Southern California IBEW-NECA Pension Plan Document, and to the extent it differs from the Plan Document, the terms of the Plan Document will govern.

Important Note:

Notwithstanding any information below or in the Benefits at a Glance brochure, for retirements that are first in pay status on or after April 1, 2017, certain Defined Benefit Plan provisions are scheduled to change in accordance with the adoption of Alternative Schedules 1 or 2 under the Second Critical Status Rehabilitation Plan.


The Southern California IBEW-NECA (SCIBEW-NECA) Pension Trust Fund (the Pension Plan) is designed to provide a steady source of retirement income. When combined with the SCIBEW-NECA Defined Contribution Plan, Social Security and your personal savings and investments, the Pension Plan can offer you a strong financial future in your retirement years.

The Board of Trustees is pleased to provide this Benefits at a Glance Brochure that summarizes the most important features of the Pension Plan.

This brochure provides basic information about the Pension Plan, but does not provide complete details; it's an overview for your quick reference. When you need more information, refer to the SCIBEW-NECA website at or call the Administrative Trust Funds Office at 1-800-824-6935.

Knowing how your benefits accumulate and what your responsibilities are can help you plan for your future. We will keep you advised of any changes in Plan benefits or procedures.
