Message from IBEW 292 Benefits

Dear IBEW Local 292 Members:

A lot of information is coming in fast and everyone has a lot of questions regarding COVID-19. I am working with the Trustees to gather as much accurate information as we can, process it and get it out to the membership as soon as possible. Just like everywhere else this is happening; this process is challenging and new. We can assure you; the safety and well-being of all members, families, and our staff is the highest priority.

Due to COVID-19, we are taking precautionary measures to protect you, your families, and our staff in the office.

  1. The offices will continue to remain open, for now, but we ask you to try to conduct business by: Phone, Email, Mail or Online.
  2. DO NOT come down to IBEW 292 Benefits Office unless it’s necessary and please call us first to assure someone is available to help you. 763-493-8830 or 800-368-9045

Thank you for your patience as we all work through this crisis. Nothing is more important to us than protecting the health and safety of our members, families, and our staff. Please stay safe. We will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation and will be updating information on our website IBEW292BENEFITS.org and/or by email or mail. Please follow all the recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control to limit or eliminate your exposure by staying at home, washing hands often, cleaning surfaces and practicing recommended social distancing.
