The Local 26 IBEW-NECA Joint Trust Funds (the “Plans”) are employee benefit plans administered pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union No. 26 and the National Electrical Contractors Association–Washington D.C. Chapter.
The Plans are jointly administered (labor and management) Taft-Hartley trust funds and are subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), as amended.

The Local 26 IBEW-NECA Joint Trust Funds, also referred to as the “Plans”, are administered by the Fund Office in Lanham, Maryland. Providing benefits for electrical workers, retirees, certain office workers, and their families in the Washington DC metropolitan area, the Plans cover more than 20,000 individuals for health, retirement, and annuity benefits.
The Fund Office staff consists of various departments, department managers, and a fund manager. All of these people are prepared to answer questions, process benefit payments, and generally provide services to our members and their families, as well as to deliver data to (and receive data from) the more than 200 electrical contracting companies that participate in the Plans.
