Take Action: Tell Congress to Authorize Composite Plans for Multiemployer Pension Plans

Jun 09, 2017
The nation's multiemployer defined benefit pension plans have provided a secure retirement to America's working families for generations.

The NECA-supported Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 (MPRA) included several major reforms and brought about a joint effort between management and labor. Unfortunately, the law did not include the important recommendation of creating "composite" benefit plans which are a hybrid between a defined contribution and a defined benefit plan. Allowing plans to transition to composite plan designs is necessary to provide a retirement security benefit for the electrical construction industry's workers and the fiscal viability of employers that contribute to NECA multiemployer pension plans.
