Communication Workers of America Local 3111 was originally chartered on February 1, 1968. At that time, it represented employees of Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company that worked in Sebastian, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce and Stuart, Florida. As Florida grew so did Local 3111. The Local now represents at&t and at&t mobility employees and covers all towns or cities in the following counties: Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin.
If you have moved since you have been hired, please make sure you have contacted the company. Many times we forget to do that and then we don't get the documents that are sent out by AT&T.
Our next membership meeting is December 7th at 7 PM
Good morning, there is a 100.00 charge for identity theft that was added to all of our annual enrollment’s probably overnight. If you completed it and it wasn’t on there it is now. HR in Dallas is trying to fix it now. Some members are calling benefits and they are removing it. I say have HR remove it but their number is 877 722 0020 just in case. All of your members need to be made aware of this and I will let you know when it is fixed so we can all check.

First Quadrant, the provider of the Balanced Fund, has notified AT&T that when the market closes on October 31, 2022, the investment option currently offered through the BSSP will no longer be available. If a participant is currently invested in the Balanced Fund, they may choose to move their investment to one or more of the BSSP’s other investment options prior to this date. This Investment Option change affects approximately 8,001 active employees and 4,799 prior employees, beneficiaries and alternate payees.
Unless alternate direction is provided by the participant on or before October 31, 2022, any existing balances in the Balanced Fund, as well as future contributions designated for such investments, will be directed to the BSSP’s Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA), the LifePath Fund based on the participant’s date of birth.
This BSSP fund change will be communicated to all participants of the BSSP by September 26, 2022, via the attached Summary of Material Modifications. This document, along with the prospectus and Summary Plan Description (SPD), will also be available to participants on Fidelity’s NetBenefits website.
There will be a News Now distributed on Tuesday, September 27, 2022 that advises employees of rising interest rates, which could impact their pension benefit, if electing to receive their benefit in 2023 compared to 2022 (excludes BCB2 participants). The News Now will also include a link to a modeling tutorial that illustrates how to model their benefit on Fidelity NetBenefits, along with information on where to find historical interest rates as a reference.
Generally, the interest rates that apply to benefit start dates in 2023 will not be known until mid-December of 2022. Given interest rates have risen significantly so far this year from historic lows, we are advising participants who may be considering leaving the business in the coming months, so they have time to assess the impact of changing interest rates on their pension benefit. There are many factors that affect the decision to leave the company and when to start a pension beyond the impact of interest rates. Since this is time-sensitive information, we want to ensure employees are aware of resources available to help plan accordingly.
