Benefits

The Multi Union Security Trust Fund offers a comprehensive range of benefits. These benefits are available to the members of Teamsters Locals 166 and 986 through collective bargaining with their employers.

To enroll in the benefit plan you must complete the enrollment application that is provided to you by your employer at the time you become eligible for such benefits.

Additionally, the Trust gives you increased flexibility through the OPTIONS Rider. This plan is specifically designed to complement your HMO coverage.
