Central States Fund Quarterly Report: $15.1 Billion

The financial report obtained by Teamsters for a Democratic Union for the Central States Pension Fund indicates that the fund had $15.1 billion in assets as of September 30, 2017. This is down from $15.3 billion at the start of 2017.

According to the Financial and Analytical Report the fund made 4.47% return on stock holdings in the 3rd quarter, due to a market rise. However, as the fund loses assets and is in danger of insolvency down the road, the money managers have reduced stock holdings to 42% of total assets.  

The Independent Special Counsel Report notes that there are 58,278 active participants and 202,085 retirees drawing benefits. The average pension is $1,157 per month.

We hope to get the year-end financial report soon, and will make that information available to members and retirees.

The Central States Health and Welfare Fund financial report (rebranded TeamCare) continues to show a rapid growth in assets. During the first nine months of 2017, the H&W Fund took in $2.5 billion, while paying $2.0 billion in benefits.

Central States Pension: Latest Financial Report

The Central States Pension Fund ended the first quarter of 2018 with assets of $14.8 billion, a loss of $172 million for the quarter ending March 31, 2018. However, the loss would have been much worse except for a one-time payment of $467 million by the Kroger Corporation; this was a lump sum payment to pull all Kroger and some Kroger-contractor employees out of the pension fund permanently.
