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.
