The IAM National Pension Fund Is Here to Help
The IAM National Pension Fund (IAMNPF) understands this is a difficult time for the Spirit AeroSystems employees, but we are here to help as you consider your retirement options. The IAMNPF is anticipating an increase in pension applications related to the Spirit VRP, so please be patient as we do our best to process them in a timely manner. If you are retiring, submitting a complete application with all required documents will help speed up the processing of your application. The application checklist is under the ‘Pension Application Checklist section below.
Estimate Your Pension
To estimate your pension, log onto our secure portal (IAMNPF IPASS) and click on the first estimator button (green "Click Here" button). If you do not have access to the secure portal (IAMNPF IPASS) of our website, you can create your login ID and password online or call 1-800-424-9608 for assistance.
Applying for Your Pension
If you wish to retire and collect your IAMNPF Pension, you must submit a complete pension application to receive your benefits. To apply for your pension on our website, click the "Apply Here" button above. The Benefit Funds Office (BFO) will receive your application the following day it is submitted online. Please note, if you apply online, you must mail in the required documents separately. Once all required documents are received, the BFO will begin processing your application. You can also request a paper application by printing, completing and mailing the Request For Application or Estimate Form to the IAMNPF, calling the IAMNPF Customer Service at 800-424-9608 or by writing to the Fund at 99 M St. SE, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20003. Once your completed application is received, if eligible, you will be sent a Benefit Election Form (BEF). This will provide you with your estimated monthly pension benefit amount based on your pension effective date and the years of service you have accrued. The BEF also allows you to choose your payment option. Along with the BEF, you will be mailed additional forms as required; please see the checklist below for more information. Please note that pension applications submitted without the required documents (see checklist below) will not be processed until the BFO has received all required documents.
