About The Defined Contribution Fund
The MCASF Local 725 Defined Contribution Retirement Fund is a defined contribution retirement plan. The Plan most recently was amended and restated, effective July 1, 2021, and subsequently was amended from time to time to make necessary and desirable changes.
The Plan is managed by a Board of Trustees comprised of both Local Union 725 and MCASF representatives. This site provides Participants with online access to complete information about your Defined Contribution Retirement Plan.
You should file an Retirement Application well in advance of the date you expect to retire.

Make your retirement nest egg bigger...
Did you know you can increase your retirement nest egg through an employee deferred contribution?
In addition to the $1.00 per hour that your Employer pays on your behalf for every hour you work to the Defined Contribution Retirement Fund, you can elect to have your employer withhold from your gross wages an elective contribution that will increase your retirement account.
The 2024 calendar maximum for Elective Contribution is $23,000. If you will be at least 50 years old on December 31, 2024, you may elect to have an additional "Catch-Up" elective contribution up to a maximum of $7,500.
Before deciding on electing an employee elective contribution, which will be deducted from your gross pay, you should consult a personal financial and tax advisors for guidance.
The election is for the whole calendar year and cannot be changed or stopped.
