The Fund Office will remain open with limited personnel on-site as long as it is permissible under the "Safer at Home" Order as well as Local Ordinances and State and Federal Law. Fund Office personnel are also working remotely to ensure that the needs of participants and signatory employers continue to be met.

Please contact the Administrative Trust Funds Office if you would like to set up an electronic deposit for your future benefit payments.

Health Benefits – Active and Retired Participants eligible for health benefits through the Southern California IBEW-NECA Health Trust Fund will continue to receive their benefits.
