United Association Local Unions

The United Association National Pension Fund (UANPF) proudly welcomes you to our Local Unions page. We have designed these pages to be a valuable tool for Local Union Business Managers, elected officers, office staff and Local Fund Administrators, to quickly access UANPF information, documents and forms and to find answers to frequently asked questions.

The UANPF was established in July 1968 to provide retirement benefits for employees who are represented by the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry (United Association) or by a United Association Local Union or District Council.

The Fund maintains a multiemployer defined benefit pension plan funded solely by employer contributions and investment earnings. The contributions are made in accordance with collective bargaining agreements or other participation agreements.

The Plan includes many jurisdictions throughout the U.S., but not all jurisdictions in which there is a United Association Local Union participate in the Plan at this time. Bargaining units are allowed to join at different times, and their contribution rates vary.

PEERS Mandate Letter

PEERS is a secure, web-based electronic remittance system, which will save Employers valuable time and expense when submitting monthly remittances. In turn, it will allow UANPF to process member’s contributions more efficiently and credit hours to our Participants more promptly. This is one of many measures we are adopting to reduce administrative costs and increase the efficiency of Fund office operations. Are you remitting payments the old fashion way and want to make the move to PEERS, the new electronic remittance program? If so, we are here to assist with a smooth transition. The PEERS Helpdesk staff are available from 7:00 AM – 4:30 PM EST, Monday thru Friday and can be reached by e-mail at PEERSHelpdesk@uanpf.com or by phone at 1-800-638-7442, ext. 3340.

UANPF Standard Form of Participation Agreement (“SFPA”)

The Fund’s Standard Form of Participation Agreement (“Agreement”) must be signed by contributing employers who agree to be bound to a collective bargaining agreement requiring contributions to the Fund. Alternatively, the text of the Agreement can be included in the body of the Local Union’s collective bargaining agreement. Note, the Agreement has been revised, effective December 1, 2020, to change the description of the non-bargaining unit employees for whom the employer is required to continue contributions to the Fund. Contact the Fund Office with any questions.
