The new CBA contains increased and new benefits for vested alumni including increased pensions, a reduction to three seasons for pension vesting, and a new Health Reimbursement Account. Please take the time to fully review. If you have any questions please contact memberservice nflalumni. Personnel Records: Each Club will within seven 7 days after a written request of any player, permit the player to inspect and copy his individual personnel file and any other document which objectively relates to his performance and which in turn relates to any grievance.

Section 2. Players not yet employed by an NFL Club should execute these authorizations at the initiation of their employment. Players who are already on a Club roster should execute these authorizations as part of their annual preseason physical examination. Section 3. The Summary Report will contain the information in Appendix BB with non-material modifications to the format as necessary. The Summary Report will be generated solely based on the information contained in the Electronic Medical Records and may include non-workplace conditions, illnesses and injuries suffered by the players outside the course and scope of employment.

The Club may elect to include additional medical information in its discretion. The NFLPA is responsible for maintaining accurate and current email addresses and mobile telephone numbers for the purposes of this Article.

The parties will agree on a reasonable process to obtain authorization from players to share a copy of the Summary Report with the NFLPA. Right of Restoration: Each separate and individual Benefit reduced or frozen pursuant to Section 1 above may be unilaterally restored by the NFLPA in whole or in part for a League Year, if such right is exercised on or before April 15 of such League Year.

Each Benefit may be restored up to but not in excess of its prescribed level for that League Year in this Agreement. Resolution of Disputes: In the event the NFLPA and the NFL are unable to agree to Projected Benefits for the League Year for which the Salary Cap is being set, the parties will proceed immediately to mediation and binding arbitration on an expedited schedule so that all such differences are resolved in time for the timely issuance of the Special Purpose Letter for that League Year.

Such hearing will proceed for no more than three days, the first day of which will include whatever mediation efforts the Benefit Arbitrator deems appropriate; provided, however, that such mediation will not be binding on the parties.

Post-hearing briefs following the close of such hearing will be permitted only if requested by the Benefit Arbitrator, and any post-hearing brief so requested must be submitted within one 1 week, with no extension. The parties intend that post-hearing briefs will be requested only in unusual circumstances. Section 4. Each Player Benefit Arrangement shall provide, or be amended to the extent necessary to provide, for the prevention of any employer-provided benefit from accruing or being otherwise credited or earned thereunder with respect to any year following the expiration of this Agreement, and to provide that no expense incurred in maintaining the Player Benefit Arrangement in a year following the expiration of this Agreement shall be paid, directly or indirectly, by an NFL Club except to the extent required by law, or as otherwise provided in this Agreement.

Section 5. The Retirement Plan, and all past and future amendments thereto as adopted in accordance with the terms of that Plan, are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement; provided, however, that the terms used in such Plan and the definitions of such terms are applicable only to such Plan and shall have no applicability to this Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.

No provision of this Agreement will eliminate or reduce the obligation to provide the benefits described in this Article, or eliminate or reduce the obligations of the NFL Clubs to fund retirement benefits. Contributions will be used exclusively to provide retirement benefits and to pay expenses.

Contributions for a Plan Year will be made on or before the end of each Plan Year. Benefit Credits, including Legacy Credits and Special Credits, for future seasons and benefits subject to Retirement Board approval, if any, for Plan Years beginning on and after the League Year ending in will be determined pursuant to future collective bargaining agreements, if any.

It will be the duty of the Retirement Board of the Retirement Plan to pursue all available legal remedies in an effort to assure timely payment of all contributions due under this Agreement. In all other circumstances, the Credits shall be treated as Benefit Credits. Notwithstanding the two prior sentences, the Credits set forth below shall not be included in Disability Credits as defined in the Retirement Plan.

Benefits for affected players in pay status shall be proportionately increased based on the new and prior Total Credits. For the avoidance of doubt, a player vesting under this Section 5 shall not be a Vested Player for purposes of any other employee benefit plan under this Agreement.

A Player vested under this Section 5 shall not be eligible for the Life only pension with Social Security adjustment under Section 4. Section 6. Death Benefits: Effective for payments on or after April 1, , the parties will amend Section 7. The Retirement Plan shall be further amended to add a section 7. Such Plan will be continued and maintained in full force and effect during the term of this Agreement. The Annuity Program, and all future amendments thereto as adopted in accordance with the terms of that Program, are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement; provided, however, that the terms used in such Program and the definitions of such terms are applicable only to such Program, and shall have no applicability to this Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.

The NFL Clubs will make advance contributions to the Annuity Program in an amount sufficient to pay all administrative expenses approved by the Annuity Board. The amount of the Allocation will be first allocated to the Qualified Portion not to exceed the maximum permitted under law, with the remainder allocated to the Taxable Portion. Contributions, if any, for subsequent years will be determined pursuant to future collective bargaining agreements, if any. It will be the duty of the fiduciaries of the Player Annuity Program to pursue all available legal remedies in an effort to assure payment of all contributions due under this Agreement.

All other players who are entitled to an allocation in an Annuity Year will receive an allocation on March 31 of such Annuity Year. The Annuity Program is intended, except the tax qualified portion referenced above and the allocation to the Capital Accumulation Plan in Article 55A, to be a program of deferred compensation that is not tax-qualified within the meaning of Section a of the Internal Revenue Code. Accordingly, it is intended that individual allocations will be subject to current taxation, and that taxes will be withheld in accordance with the requirements of applicable federal, state, and local law.

The parties intend that the amount of each individual taxable allocation remaining after withholding taxes will be used to purchase an annuity. For purposes of this calculation, Net Worth is defined as the net worth of the Company as shown in the pro forma financial statements. Player forfeitures, as determined under the vesting schedule described in the CAP Plan, will be used to reduce the amount of advanced contributions. Annual and aggregate benefit limits and deadlines will be transitioned as set forth below.

The Plan shall be amended to provide that a player with less than two Credited Seasons who does not use the full amount of his benefit during a Plan Year in which he is eligible, and who is not eligible for the benefit in the following Plan Year, shall be eligible to use during such following Plan Year any remaining benefit amount from the Plan Year in which he was eligible. The Plan shall continue to provide that a reimbursable expense is incurred during a Plan Year if it is paid in such Plan Year, including the Plan Year.

A reimbursable expense incurred on or after the beginning of the Plan Year, and on or before the end of the League Year, shall be payable after the end of the League Year if the claim for reimbursement is timely filed under the requirements of the Tuition Plan, and all other requirements of the Tuition Plan are satisfied.

The Tuition Plan shall continue to be a written plan that is intended to qualify as an educational assistance program under Section of the Internal Revenue Code that provides benefits to a player in any calendar year up to the maximum exclusion amount of Section of the Internal Revenue Code, to minimize the tax burden on players.

Benefits in excess of the maximum exclusion of Section of the Internal Revenue Code in any calendar year will be subject to taxation and wage withholdings. To be eligible for reimbursement, fees must be associated with the course or courses taken. The requirement that a player must be under contract when he incurs the reimbursable expense shall be eliminated. A Practice Squad Player must use the amount earned for tuition reimbursement during a Season before the end of the Plan Year in which the player earns the benefit.

However, if a player does not use his benefit earned during the Season by the end of such Plan Year, and the Season is the last Season in which the player is on a Practice Squad roster for three weeks and he does not otherwise qualify for reimbursement under Section 3 a or 3 b , he shall have until the end of the following Plan Year to use the benefit.

A Practice Squad Player shall be deemed to have used the benefit as of the date he incurs the reimbursable expense defined under the Plan as the date he pays the expense , and not the date he first satisfies the requirement to be reimbursed. If a Practice Squad player becomes eligible for the benefit under this Article 56 by satisfying the requirements under Section 3 a he shall not be eligible for the Practice Squad benefit for any Plan Year in which he is otherwise eligible under Section 3 a.

The 88 Plan, and any and all future amendments thereto, will be incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement; provided, however, that the terms used in such Plan and the definitions of such terms are applicable only to such Plan, and shall have no applicability to this Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.

The Plan Year begins on April 1. Benefits: Effective April 1, , the parties shall amend Section 3. Term: This Plan will continue to provide benefits as above after the League Year and after the expiration of this Agreement, but only to a former player who qualified during the term of this Agreement and who remains qualified. The Severance Plan will be continued and maintained in full force and effect during the term of this Agreement and at all times comply with the terms of this Article.

This Article will not extinguish or affect any other rights that a player may have to any other severance pay. Determinations of the Retirement Board with respect to Credited Seasons will be final and binding for purposes of determining severance pay.

Second Payment: Any player who returns to NFL football after receiving a severance payment under this Article will still be entitled to further severance pay based solely on his subsequent Credited Seasons. Section 7. Neither the NFL nor any NFL Clubs will have any obligation to verify other than to the NFLPA upon request the amount of severance pay a player may be entitled to receive, unless and until an application for pay is properly submitted by such player.

Plan Benefits Primary: Any player who is entitled to any payment or benefit under any other Article of this Agreement that would be eligible for payment or reimbursement under the LTC Plan will continue to have such payment or benefit offset by the amount eligible for payment or reimbursement under the LTC Plan. Allocation for Certain Former Players. The HRA Plan shall be amended to provide an allocation to former players who are alive and not yet age 65 on April 1, , who have at least three Credited Seasons, and who have never had a nominal account in the HRA.

The allocation to the nominal account of these former players will be made as of April 1, A former player receiving an allocation under this Section 4 may submit a claim for reimbursement from the HRA Plan for medical expenses incurred on or after April 1, , if the date of service for such expenses is within 12 months from the date the former player submits a claim for reimbursement.

The FPLIP, and all past and future amendments thereto as adopted in accordance with the terms of the FPLIP, are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement, provided, however, that the terms used in the FPLIP and definitions of such terms are applicable only to the FPLIP and shall have no applicability to the Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.

Different levels of benefits are provided to eligible former players depending on whether they are covered by medical insurance. No benefits will be paid for revisions of prior procedures that replaced a joint. Bilateral procedures will not be available for former players who qualify for payment pursuant to Subsection 1 b of this Article. Eligible former players and their dependents will be issued a card that provides immediate discounts for prescription drugs at participating retail pharmacies in the United States.

There is no discount for over-the-counter or non-prescription medication. The discount card benefit may not be used in conjunction with any other plan or program, including Medicare, that provides similar benefits. Spine Treatment Benefit: Eligible former players shall continue to receive facilitated access and comprehensive, coordinated evaluation at participating medical centers. Section 8. Section 9. Section The Non-Vested Wellness Plan will be continued and maintained in full force and effect during the term of this Agreement, and all past and future amendments thereto as adopted in accordance with the terms of the Non-Vested Wellness Plan are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement, provided, however, that the terms of the Non-Vested Wellness Plan used in the Non-Vested Wellness Plan and definitions of such terms are applicable only to the Non-Vested Wellness Plan and shall have no applicability to the Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.
