    We regretfully inform you that Brother Brass Rinehart passed away on Monday, February 22nd, 2021.  He was a member of the Electricians Death Benefit Fund and has been assigned #131.  His beneficiary was paid a benefit based on 238 members.

    Members utilizing the recurring payment option will be charged in March. 

    For your convenience, payments may be combined with monthly dues as well as payable over the phone with credit or debit card. 

    Thank you for your participation in this Fund.

    Special Note:  Pursuant to EDBF bylaws, participants will reimburse the Fund $10.00 within 60 days following notification of a participant’s death or be dropped from EDBF.  At the end of the 60 days a participant’s coverage will not continue if the Fund has not been reimbursed all monies due.  Once a member has been dropped for non-payment, he/she must pay all arrears, not to exceed $100.00, and a new membership fee of $20.00 to rejoin the fund. 

    Only Active “A” members and their spouses are allowed to rejoin.  No exceptions will be allowed.

    Brothers and Sisters,

    Due to the increased number of COVID-19 cases, please make every effort to conduct business via phone or email and not in person at the union hall.

    The March Regular Union meeting has been cancelled.  The Executive Board will continue to meet as per the IBEW Constitution.

    We encourage members making payments directly, including those who make EDBF payments only, to utilize the recurring payment option whenever possible.  A form is available on the website for members who are logged in or by contacting the hall.
