**NEBF Update**


Retirees Enrolled in our Health Insurance:

There was a mailing that was sent out by Wilson-McShane that everyone should've received around December 15th.  This mailing is offering a sign-up for Dental & Vision.  The mailing went out later than expected, so the deadline has been extended to December 27th to accommodate the error.  If you do not submit the forms by then, please do not panic, they'll just enroll you into the next month.  


Congratulations IBEW 131 Retirees!
