Did You Know...

Participants in the Family Death Benefit Plan (FDBP) are in for good news: their FDBP contribution is decreasing from $3.70 per month to $3.00 beginning in July 2018. If you are a participant in the FDBP, you will see your reduced contribution amount ($1.50 per pay period) reflected on your July 18, 2018 paycheck. The benefits of the FDBP remain unchanged. The only thing changing is a decrease in your contribution. For more information regarding the FDBP, please click here or contact our Member Services Center at (800) 779-8328, TTY (888) 349-3996.
