Welcome to the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund Information Center, your one-stop shop for information, policy, procedures and forms.
James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and served as General President for 14 years, and, in recognition of his tireless service to the union and its members, was honored as General President Emeritus for life. At the November 1999 General Executive Board meeting, then-General Secretary-Treasurer C. Thomas Keegel presented a resolution to establish the new scholarship fund. This site describes the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund (JRHMSF) and outlines eligibility requirements and application procedures. The 2016-2017 scholarship has an application deadline of March 31, 2016. Sorry we cannot allow any extensions to this deadline.
The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund is an independent organization established and registered as a tax-exempt entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Fund is established solely to provide scholarships to the child or financially dependent grandchild of a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and contributions to the Fund are deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law. The International Union provides certain in-kind services to the Fund, such as this portion of the union web site, in order to benefit members and their child or financially dependent grandchild.
Re: Disclosure Notice from Local 560 Trucking Employees Fund Office
Recently all working members who are covered through the Local 560 plan of benefits received in the mail a disclosure notice which must be completed and returned to the Local 560 Fund office. Congress recently passed legislation which requires that all participants who are covered under a medical plan must convey in writing to the insurance company that they will permit their spouse or children over the age of 18 and still covered permission to discuss medical claims issues on their behalf.
In the future you will not be able to discuss medical issues on behalf of a covered dependent if you fail to return the completed disclosure notice.
If you have any questions with regard to the disclosure notice, you may call the Local 560 (201-867-3553) or the Local One Fund Office (212-460-0800) at your convenience.
