The Fund Office has annually prepared and filed IRS Forms 1095-B as required by law. The 1095-B summarizes the months of health insurance coverage you and your eligible dependents had under the Fund for the previous calendar year. Until 2019, you needed this form for personal income tax return purposes to avoid a tax penalty. Since 2019, federal law reduced that tax penalty to $0 if there were months in which you did not have coverage. Therefore, you do not need Form 1095-B to complete and file your 2019 or 2020 personal income tax return, and the Fund no longer automatically mails them to participants.
As required, the Fund Office will provide a Form 1095-B if requested. To request a 1095-B, please call, e-mail or write to the following individual with your name, mailing address, date of birth, and last 4 digits of your Social Security Number:
