The health and safety as well as the security of our members is always our main concern. The Trust will also provide no cost testing for members and their dependents for the virus when the need develops.

October 2, 2018 - WTWT Lower Retiree Self-Pay Contibution Rates (for those not on medicare)
September 15, 2018 - October Notice for Nov 5th Retiree Insurance Meeting
January 3, 2018- For those of you working for ABF or YRC, Western Teamsters Welfare Trust (WTWT) handles your Dental benefits. Since September 1, 2011, the PPO for dental coverage was through Carington MaximumCare Network. Western Teamsters Welfare Trust (WTWT) has changed their PPO network to Anthem BlueCross Dental Network as of January 1, 2018. Click Here to read the letter sent out in November 2017. If you were not using Carington before, you were likely using a WTWT Non-PPO provider, which you can continue to do.
The Anthem BlueCross Dental Network has nothing to do with your current Health insurance, it is for Dental only.
You may have recently received Dental cards for The Anthem BlueCross Dental Network. WTWT will be mailing new cards again by the end of January 2018 to replace the ones you received recently because the phone number in the back is incorrect. Please watch the mail for it. If you have any questions you can call 1-800-872-5439.
