Brothers and Sisters,
We have heard concerning reports of a potential scam related to the Iron Workers District Council of New England Benefit Funds. Please read the following security notice, and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Security Alert to Members, 4/5/2021
If you ever get a request, either by phone or by email, to relay your personal medical or banking information to someone claiming to be from the Iron Workers Fund office (or another vendor) or to change anything related to your benefits, be suspicious!
You should call the Fund Office at the number listed on all Notices, the Website or check with your Local to verify who is contacting you with the questions.
Send a separate email (do not reply to the “vendor” email or click on an email address in the “vendor” email). If it is a legitimate request, the Fund Office will have you contact them first and will be able to confirm any such communications.
You will never be contacted by the Benefit Fund Office to relay your personal information without verification.
William P. Hurley
