    A while back we were trying to determine which states participated in the Central States Pension Fund.

    As most data involving the pension funds it was elusive and we tried a voluntary posting here of members from participating states.

    CSPF just sent me an new and spiffy Plan Description that actually lists the states, so here they are in alphabetical order:

    Alabama
    Arkansas
    Colorado
    Florida
    Georgia
    Illinois
    Indiana
    Iowa
    Kansas
    Kentucky
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Minnesota
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    North Carolina
    North Dakota
    Ohio
    Oklahoma
    Pennsylvania
    South Carolina
    South Dakota
    Tennessee
    Texas
    Virginia
    West Virginia
    Wisconsin

    Realize, some of these states are exclusively CSPF and some are not.

    I know that Pennsylvania and Illinois are two examples of states where many workers are members of CSPF and many others belong to smaller geographical pension funds.

    Yes, anybody who recently went full time and is a member of Central States should realize that their pension isn't goiing to take care of them in retirement. I would strongly recommend you to start investing early in something else, you don't need the most expensive car or large house, and marry someone with a good job with good benefits!

    "Realize, some of these states are exclusively CSPF and some are not."

    I'm in Virginia and we're under Joint Council #83. Seems that most of the Freight guys are under CS.

    Bill, I believe Wyoming is in the Western Confrence Pension fund. I was going to transfer there a few years back.
