About Us

The National Integrated Group Pension Plan (“NIGPP” or “the Plan”), formerly known as the National Industrial Group Pension Plan, is a nationwide pension plan that is governed by a Board of Trustees. It was first established in 1965 and has been in operation continuously since that date.

The NIGPP is a multiemployer plan, which means it receives and invests contributions from many participating employers and provides pension benefits to the eligible employees (and their beneficiaries) of many employers. The contributions are made by the participating employers in accordance with collective bargaining agreements entered into by the employers and many international and local unions that act on behalf of their members. Participating employers and unions both agreed to participate in the NIGPP by signing participation agreements.

The Plan is administered by a Board of Trustees, who are charged with applying and interpreting the rules and regulations of the Plan. They are assisted by an Administrative Agency that has the responsibility for day-to-day operations of the Plan and paying benefits. Contributions are held and benefits paid from a separate trust fund that is independent of any employer or union. The Plan’s assets are held in trust and invested by the Board of Trustees for the exclusive purpose of providing those benefits and paying the Plan’s expenses. Benefits are insured, within certain legal limits, by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (“PBGC”), a federal insurance agency. The Plan operates on a plan year basis, which begins each January 1 and ends on December 31.
