If your employer is paying for your vision benefit, they will receive an email notification of your enrollment and must acknowledge your election via the Pension Boards’ employer portal. Please check the status of your enrollment by logging into the Pension Boards website and select “Vision Enrollment” on the “Benefits Selection” page to make sure your employer has approved your election. If your application still says “Pending,” please contact your employer.
Participants who wish to pay for their coverage on a self-pay basis, can elect to do so by submitting payment online.

Plan benefits include annual eye exams, prescription glasses or contact lenses, as well as discounts on lens options, additional glasses, and sunglasses.
