The Pension: National Roofing Industry Pension Plan

Eligibility
You may participate in the plan if you work at least 500 hours in a plan year for a contributing employer, are doing work covered by a collective bargaining agreement or other written agreement recognized by the plan trustees, and your employer is required to contribute to the plan on your behalf.In subsequent years, you receive plan credit if you work at least 450 hours in a plan year for a contributing employer. You become vested after earning five years of vested service.

Your Retirement Date You are eligible for a normal retirement benefit at age 65 if you have participated in the NRIPP for at least five years or have at least five years of vested service. You can retire as early as age 55 if you have 15 years of vested service. However, if you were participating in the NRIPP before January 1, 2004, and you have not permanently lost all of your vested service before that date, you can retire at age 55 with 10 years of vested service. If you retire early your benefit payments may be lower because you will most likely receive them over a longer period of time. For benefits earned prior to 2004, there is no reduction for early retirement at age 60 or later with 20 or more years of vested service or at age 62 or later with 10 or more years of vested service. For benefits earned after 2003, there is no reduction for early retirement at age 60 or later with 25 or more years of vested service or at age 62 or later with 20 or more years of vested service provided you have worked at least 750 hours in at least one plan year after your 49th birthday.
