Message from the Southern California Area Welfare Director

Attention Members:

Please see message below from the ILWU Area Welfare Director:

MESSAGE FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AREA WELFARE DIRECTORPlease be aware that as of Monday, March 16th, 2020 both the Benefit Plans Office and the Coastwise Claims Office in San Francisco have closed on a temporary basis due to the requirements and recommendations of local, state and federal governments.  This does NOT mean they are closed and not doing work.  It means that they have set up their staff to work remotely from home.  Most, if not all, normal activities will continue through this period at least until April 7th, 2020.  That means Pension Checks will go out as normal, CSDI supplement checks will go out, and Claims will be processed.  It is important to note that the CSDI Supplement is just that, paid when you are a recipient of CSDI.  Those of you receiving Paid Family Leave or unemployment are not eligible for this supplement.  If anything changes with this contractual protocol, I will be sure to let you all know via your Local’s websites and staff members.

Effective immediately, our building on Western Ave. will not allow any outside traffic. This means the drop box we had hoped would be available to members is not. All members needing service must use the following methods: Scan and email, fax, mail or call. When you call our office, you MUST leave a message. We will get back to everyone who leaves a message.

Mailing address: 28924 S. Western Ave., Suite 202 Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275
