T he Affordable Care Act requires the UFT Welfare Fund to report to the Internal Revenue Service the names and Social Security numbers of members and their dependents who are covered by the Fund. In December, via either email or regular mail, the Welfare Fund contacted members whose dependents were missing Social Security numbers in its records and asked them to provide the missing information.
A copy of what the Welfare Fund reports to the IRS will be mailed to each member at the end of January. Once received, members should review their information. If updates are necessary, they can use the online Update Your Information form or complete a blue Change of Status form available from their chapter leader or via the Welfare Fund’s Forms Hotline at 1-212-539-0539.
