All Participating Local Unions,
This is to advise you that, effective January 1, 2017, the Central Pension Fund will begin accepting photocopies of birth certificates and marriage certificates, and certified copies of death certificates in connection with Applications For Benefits. Copies submitted will not be returned. Previously the Fund required original or certified copies of all documents, which were then returned to the applicants.
The instructions for the Application For Benefits which are provided to applicants (and are available on the Fund website ; www.cpfiuoe.org) are being modified to reflect this change.
