On October 23, Local 4 members, families and representatives from our partners gathered for an unforgettable retirement and planning event at Gillette Stadium. We were pleased to welcome 243 attendees for an educational event about prioritizing their physical, emotional and financial wellbeing. At the event, Local 4 members and their families learned about the many resources available to them through our union and the benefits funds office.
Representatives from Empower Retirement, the Modern Assistance Program, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and American Century Investments provided valuable educational opportunities for attendees. Our members learned about retirement planning and account access, investment and collective trust funds and available emotional wellbeing assistance.
In addition, attendees were provided 42 biometric screenings, 5 members set smoking cessation goals, and 68 flu shots were administered. Former New England Patriots outside linebacker, Rob Ninkovich, also joined us. Thank you to each of our members and families who attended the event.
