If your payment is less, your payment will be evenly distributed among all funds.
If payment is more and results in an overpayment, it will be refunded less processing fee.
Any discrepancies MUST BE NOTED in the report before being submitted.
All reports and payments are due no later than the 15th of each month to allow the fund offices the necessary time to process all reports and payments that were received on-time by the end of the month.
Reports CANNOT be processed without payment and clearing the necessary float time.
Any report/s and payment/s received after the 15th due date may take up to 3 week to process, no exceptions.
Should an employee lose their health care covearge due the contractor's late or non-payment, it is the contractors responsibilty to cover that employee/s health care until it is reinstated.
Processing time for late payments may take up to 3 weeks to process, no exceptions. For this reason it is better to pay on time.
We understand that it is not the employee/s fault that payment was paid late and every effort is made to process payments as soon as possible.
If you have reported an employee with the incorrect Social Security Number, you must send an email to EPRHelp@westernlineneca.org with a copy of the employee’s social security card and the incorrect social security number written below the copy of the card. This document must be PASSWORD PROTECTED when sending via email. Or you may contact the fund offices directly.
DO NOT CREATE A NEW PROFILE IN EPR.

After you have done this you will need to update the employee’s profile to reflect the correct social security number in EPR Live.

NECA/AMF Service Charges
NECA service dues are .5%* of your gross monthly payroll. When you reach 75,000 hours you will receive a 25% discount on your NECA service dues, which will be payable at .375% of your gross monthly payroll. NECA charges will drop to 0% after you have reached 150,000 hours.
*Dues and service charges paid to NECA National are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, they may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses subject to restrictions imposed as a result of NECA’s lobbying and political activities as defined by the Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993. NECA estimates that the nondeductible portion of your 2015 dues and service charges – the portion allocable to lobbying and political activities – is 5.2%.
For a listing of the Contracts that contain the AMF language click on the “Members Site” icon and go to Agreements.
AMF [Administrative Maintenance Fund] enabling language is contained in all Chapter Agreements, at .5% of your Gross Labor Payroll. AMF is capped at $3,000,000 in Gross Earnings. After you have reached this amount you no longer need to contribute to AMF.
