Health and Welfare/Pension Trusts

As a Teamster Local 959 member, you may be covered by the Alaska Teamster-Employer Welfare Plan, provided your Employer has agreed to participate in the Plan through collective bargaining. Like the Pension plan, the Plan is administered by a joint Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of an equal number of employer representatives and employee (Union) representatives. The Trust also employs skilled Customer Service Representatives to provide information and answer any questions you may have regarding your benefit coverage.  Please visit the Pension and Welfare Trusts website at for more detailed information about the benefits and services.  The Welfare Trust office is located in the Teamsters building in Anchorage and may be contacted at (907) 751-9700 or (800) 478-4450 or
