Establishing Coverage and Effective Date

You can establish eligibility and receive benefits by working sufficient hours for a Contributing Employer who pays the required contribution to the Fund. You qualify for coverage by having worked for a Contributing Employer a minimum of 275 hours during a qualifying period or having worked for a Contributing Employer a minimum of 1,100 hours during four consecutive qualifying periods. 

In any case, your effective date of coverage (and that of your Dependents’) will not occur until the first day of the next coverage quarter, January 1, April 1, July 1, or October 1, following the qualifying period, provided contributions have been received by the Fund.

Steps and Services

Construction consistently ranks among the most dangerous occupations in the U.S. so it makes sense that construction laborers are more likely to be in pain - and seek relief from that pain - than the average employee.

LIUNA General President Terry O'Sullivan : "Opioids have become another occupational hazard in the construction industry. LIUNA and its signatory partners fight every day to keep Laborers safe from hazards ranging from trench collapses to asbestos and silica. it's time to start counting opioids on this list of potential hazards and finding ways to prevent them from harming LIUNA members and their families."
