The Carrier has advised our office the Supplemental Sickness Benefits Plan provided to employees represented by the United Transportation Union under B&O Agreement Rule 100, Section 15, will be changing April 1, 2014.  Unum Provident, the current Plan Administrator, has notified CSXT they will no longer provide administrative services for the Plan effective April 1, 2014.  Therefore, CSX has secured a new Plan Administrator, named CoreSource, Inc. who will begin providing services to our members effective April 1, 2014.

Effective April 1, 2014, claims for Supplemental Sickness Benefits should be sent to:

CoreSource, Inc.

Additionally, effective April 1, 2014, employees having questions concerning the status of claims or benefit payments should contact;


Lovetta Hammond of CoreSource

Claims received by the current Plan Administrator, Unum Provident, in the month of April 2014 will be forwarded to CoreSource for appropriate handling.

As information, new claim forms will be available on the CSX Employee Gateway, under Tools, Links& Help>Forms>Benefit Forms, within the next few weeks. I have also request copies of the Claim Form and Plan Booklet be sent to our office to allow us to distribute them to you via e-mail. Once we receive the claim forms and booklets we will forward them to you.

A copy of the letter that was sent to our office via U. S. Mail, as well as a copy of the notification that is being mailed to all UTU employees covered under the Plan can be viewed here. If you have any questions regarding this change in plans please feel free to contact our office.
