Dear Members,

“To support our open shop companies and their employees, it is my pleasure to
announce that you will be provided with credits on your Benefit Plan premiums to
assist you through these challenging times,” shared Curtis Monsebroten, Chairman,
Merit Contractors Association Benefit Plan Trust.

At Merit Benefits, we appreciate your patience as we navigate through the best
course of action to support companies and their employees with respect to the

those in-benefit for the month of April, Merit Benefits is providing you with a 50%
credit on dental and a 20% credit on extended health care premiums (excluding
prescriptions). Credits are being issued to your organization.

For those who self paid for the month of April – a credit has been posted to your account.
