Summary Of Suspension Of Benefit Provisions
(Effective October 1, 2000)

Type Of Benefit Definition Of Suspendible Employment

1. Retirement Prior To Age 70
(Normal, Early, 25-And-Out and 30-And-Out Retirement)

Employment of 50 or more hours of service during a calendar month, including employment as an employee, self-employed individual, supervising or management employee:

1. In the Industry; and

2. In a trade or craft in which the participant was employed at any time in covered employment; and

3. In the geographic area covered by the Fund, or in a geographic area from which pension benefits are being received under a Reciprocal Agreement, determined as of the time that a participant's pension benefit payments commenced or would have commenced if the participant had not remained in or returned to covered employment.

2. Retirement After Age 70
(Normal, Early, 25-And-Out and 30-And-Out Retirement)
The suspension of benefit provisions do not apply to part- icipants who have reached age 70 and work in "suspendible employment."
3. Disability Retirement
(Prior to age 60; after age 60 the requirements at Section 1 apply)

The participant:

1. Does not continue to be totally and permanently dis- abled, as determined by the Social Security Admin- istration; or

2. Is engaged in any occupation or employment for wage or profit while disabled; or

3. No longer receives Social Security disability benefits.

Upon attaining age 60, the participant's disability benefits automatically change to normal retirement benefits, and employment following retirement is then subject to the rules for normal retirement in Section 1 above.

NOTE: THIS IS ONLY A SUMMARY OF THE SUSPENSION OF PENSION BENEFIT PROVISIONS AND REFERENCE MUST BE MADE TO THE PLAN'S GOVERNING DOCUMENTS FOR THE ACTUAL PROVISIONS.
