Hello this question is directed to canadian ibew members who have worked as travellers in the United states. I'll be travelling in the U.s in the near future to work and i was wondering what happens to the pensions funds earned in a U.S. local. I called the ibew in Washington yesterday and spoke to the "qualified reciprocity expert" on pensions matters (electrical reciprocity transfer system) he told me that all pension funds earned in the U.S. remain in the U.S. Furthermore i would have to work (depending on the summary plan description of the particular local ) for whatever period of time it requires to be vested, be it 1,2 or 3 years. Otherwise those moneys would be lost forever . Thanks to all who respond.
