An important deadline and message about the BLET’s MetLife Part B Occupational Disability Plan

CLEVELAND, March 11 — An important deadline is coming up on March 31, 2015, for those members currently participating in the BLET’s MetLife Part B Occupational Disability Plan (“Part B Plan”).

Due to changes in the provisions of Brotherhood law governing the handling of insurance premiums, BLET Division Secretary-Treasurers may no longer collect insurance premiums on behalf of members. As a result, members are now responsible for handling their own payments with insurance providers.

To help ensure a seamless transition, Part B Plan participants have been sent an authorization form and postage-paid envelope via the U.S. Postal Service. These packets should have arrived in homes

Do not lose this opportunity to continue your Part B coverage! Please read the important message from MetLife about your coverage. In order to continue your participation in the Part B Plan, you must be enrolled in the auto debit payment plan by March 31, 2015, by completing the authorization form and returning it in the postage-paid envelope.

If you are a Part B participant and have not received your authorization form in the mail, or if you have any questions regarding this change in the method of payment, you should call Special Representative and Short Term Disability Liaison Megan Mead at (216) 241-2630, extension 205, or email Sister Mead at

If you have an authorization form but no postage-paid return envelope, please mail to:
