The Southern California Pipe Trades Retirement Fund is a defined benefit pension plan.

The benefits are paid for by Employers who make contributions on behalf of their Employees on a per-hour basis under a Collective Bargaining Agreement or Participation Agreement.

Employees or Participants in the Plan accumulate credit under the Plan based upon their years of employment covered by the Plan.

Qualification for benefits and the amount of those benefits are based upon the Participant's service with Contributing Employers and his or her age at retirement.

Benefits are also provided at disability for Eligible Participants.
