The ONLY TWO pieces of information that agents will confirm to a claimant is the date they filed their claim and the method they filed their claim (phone or web). They will NOT ask the claimant for their mother’s maiden name or their SS# or any other personal information. If they receive a call asking for this information it is a SCAM.

In remaining proactive on several hospital projects and due to the ongoing social distancing requirements, we wanted to have certifications/refreshers readily available to our membership online. Many upcoming hospital projects in addition to the 8 story Northwell Hospital in Manhasset which has already broken ground, will require all Carpenters to have OSHA 30 within the last 5 years. This project will require a significant amount of manpower and we would not want any of our members to miss out due to a lack of required certification.
