Vacation Benefits –2023 Year-End Closing
Apply for Vacation and Port Relief Benefits early to avoid the year-end rush.
Any member requiring their check to be dated in 2023 must file before this deadline. Remember, Monday, December 25, 2023, and Monday, January 1, 2024, are holidays, and the Outports and the Plan Office will be closed. It is always wise to plan, so you should verify the specific holiday schedule with the Plan Office Representative.
Split Your Vacation Payments between 2023 and 2024
You can submit an Application for Vacation Pay before the end of the year and request that the payment of your vacation benefits be split. Two checks will be issued to you, one in 2023 and a second in 2024. The 12/18/2023 deadline applies to split claims also. The vacation benefits paid in this manner MUST be a continuous vacation period.
Please contact the Vacation Plan staff in Baltimore at 800-811-6322 or 410-547-9111 if you have any questions.
