HISTORY OF THE THE TRUST FUND OFFICE

The Sheet Metal Workers’ Health and Pension Plans of Southern California, Arizona & Nevada were established in the 1950’s. Over the past six decades these Funds have provided Pension and Health benefits to many thousands of Sheet Metal Workers from many Sheet Metal Locals. Numerous Labor and Management Trustees put in countless uncompensated hours over those years to establish the Plans as they are today.

The Sheet Metal Benefit Plans Administrative Corporation (SMBPAC), a non-profit corporation, was established by the Trustees of the Sheet Metal Workers’ Health and Pension Plans of Southern California, Arizona & Nevada in 1991, specifically to directly administer those Plans, as well as a number of small related plans. The Corporation is managed and monitored by its Board of Directors which is comprised of Trustees of the benefit plans. Located in Manhattan Beach, California, SMBPAC employs approximately 35 individuals (represented by OPEIU 537), who provide Health and Pension benefits services to over 7000 active and retired Sheet Metal Workers and their families.

In 2012 SMBPAC’s Pension Department oversaw the payment of nearly $87.7 million in pension benefits. That same year, SMBPAC’s Claims Department and Eligibility Departments processed and paid over $64 million in Fee-for-Service medical claims, HMO premiums, various vision and dental plans, and related and necessary ancillary services.

The Trustees and the staff of SMBPAC are now happy to make available this improved  web page. This page will make available general benefit information, forms and other Fund related items. We will be approaching the Trustees about soon making this website interactive in order that you may access your own eligibility, pension work histories, and other useful information.

We hope you find value in your visit to this site and we are open to any suggestions you might want to offer.
