Temporary extension of deadlines due to COVID-19 National Emergency

Ohio Operating Engineers Fringe Benefit Programs

By Carol Wilson, Administrator

The federal government announced that the country is under a COVID-19 National Emergency starting March 1, 2020.  The period between March 1, 2020, and the 60th day after the announced end of the COVID-19 National Emergency will not count against certain deadlines under the Ohio Operating Engineers Health and Welfare Plan and the Ohio Operating Engineers Pension Plan.  The extension applies to deadlines to file a claim or appeal, enroll a new spouse or child, report COBRA qualifying events, and to elect and pay for COBRA under the Health and Welfare Plan.  The extension also applies to deadlines to file a claim or appeal under the Pension Plan.  This may give you a longer time to take certain actions.  Please contact the Fringe Benefit Programs Office at (614) 488-0708 if you have questions.
