33% Western Teamsters Pension Bonus Granted for Service in Years 2021 – 2023
The Trustees of The Western Conference of Teamsters (WCT) Pension Plan have granted a special three-year 33% pension bonus under the Plan’s contribution account benefit formula for each of the years 2021, 2022, and 2023, increasing the benefit percentage from 1.2% to 1.6% of contributions for those three years. Therefore, Plan participants will earn a higher pension for every hour of covered work for 2021, 2022, and 2023. This is on top of the 25% pension bonus granted for covered work in 2020 at the accrual rate of 1.5% of contributions. The Trustees were pleased to grant this additional bonus in light of the Plan’s continued funding improvements and accelerated path toward its funding targets.
