Have our benefits in the optical program changed? Will these changes cost me anything?

Moving away from paper certificates does not affect benefit levels or eligibility; they only serve to improve speed and ease of access by eliminating the need to wait for a paper certificate before you or your dependents access your benefits. As of March 1, 2022, the optical benefit amount will increase to $175, every two years. This additional benefit (as with all other Welfare Fund benefits) is available at no additional cost to our enrolled members and their eligible dependents.
