Important notice to retirees of former IC, ICG, CCP, GMO and/or CN-IC properties

BLET General Chairman John Koonce is sending out a special advisory to all Engineers who retired from the former IC, ICG, CCP, GMO Southern Region and Northern Region (C&A) and/or CN/IC before August 1, 2006.

Retirees from these properties who qualify for the paid-up $2,000 life insurance that was formally paid by MetLife (the old Travelers Policy) are advised that it is now being paid by the Canadian National Railway through the Retiree Benefit Center. Beneficiaries making a claim for this insurance must contact the CN Retiree Benefit Center at (800) 626-8567. It is suggested that the retiree contact the Retiree Benefit Center to make sure that they have all the information needed, such as change of address, employment date, etc.

Engineers who retire after August 1, 2006, will have $2,000 paid-up life insurance paid from the CN Retiree Benefit Center (800-626-8567) and will also have $2,000 paid through MetLife (800-310-7770).

It cannot be stressed enough that retirees and those about to retire need to make sure that their information is filed correctly with these providers.

Any questions that cannot be handled through the numbers provided above should be directed to:
