The most recent certified zone status provided by the plan, the date of the plan’s year-end to which the zone status relates, and whether the plan has utilized any extended amortization provisions that affect the calculation of the zone status.

For the plan year ending on June 30, 2021, the United Association National Pension Fund was certified as “endangered” because its estimated funded percentage on July 1, 2020 was 75.74 percent.

This certification reflects funding relief under Internal Revenue Code § 431(b)(8) and ERISA § 304(b)(8), specifically the “special amortization rule,” which allows the amortization of the Fund’s investment loss for the plan year ending June 30, 2009 over a 29-year period instead of a 15-year period. In addition, the Trustees were granted an automatic 5-year extension for all amortization charges established on or before July 1, 2009 as permitted under Internal Revenue Code § 431(d)(1).

The expiration dates of the Collective Bargaining Agreements that require contributions to the plan, if any.

The employer’s contributions made to the plan in the prior year, and whether the employer’s contributions represent more than 5 percent of total contributions to the plan.

The employer’s contributions made to the plan in the prior year, and whether the employer’s contributions represent more than 5 percent of total contributions to the plan.

Please consult your company’s records for the amount of your company’s contributions to the PPNPF in the prior year. During the most recent plan year, no employer contributed more than 5 percent of total contributions to the Fund.

As of the end of the prior year, whether a funding improvement plan or rehabilitation plan had been implemented, whether the employer paid a surcharge to the plan, and a description of any minimum contributions.

The Fund’s Board of Trustees adopted a Funding Improvement Plan (FIP) in April 2010. The FIP has been fully implemented. The Fund has never been in ‘Critical’ status, so it has not adopted a rehabilitation plan, and no employers paid a surcharge. Contribution rates are set in the applicable collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

A description of significant changes that affect comparability of total employer contributions between periods, including changes in contribution rates.

There are no plan-wide changes that would impact comparability, including no minimum funding requirements for employers. Please consult your company’s CBA for any applicable rate increases.
