Introduction
The Trustees of the Chicago Painters and Decorators Welfare Fund are pleased to provide this updated Summary Plan Description benefit book. It explains your Benefit Plan's eligibility rules, benefits and other Plan provisions.

Your Plan provides a wide range of medical, disability, dental, vision and death benefits for eligible Plan participants.

The Trustees have the authority to change benefits, eligibility rules, or other rules of the Plan as they may determine to be necessary for the administration of the Welfare Fund. In addition, the benefits currently provided are not "vested" benefits. This means the Trustees have the right, at any time, to change the eligibility rules or benefits, to institute or increase self-payments for the benefits, or to reduce or completely terminate the benefits provided for any Class or category of participants or beneficiaries.
