       800000 Immigration Legal Benefits
                Description: Immigration matters are paid on flat fee basis for each incremental service. Panel
                attorneys agree to provide the Fund with timely statements of attorney indicating when services began
                and ended. They also agree to accept these payments as payments in full and shall not charge the
                member any additional professional fees for covered benefits even when the maximum benefit is
                exhausted. Only professional services and filing fee forms that are identified in the Transaction Code
                Schedule will be approved for payment. The Fund shall pay covered filing fees for Immigration services
                directly to the INS or on an exceptional basis to a member providing a Form I-797 receipt from the INS
                and copies of cancelled check, money order or cashier check. A letter explaining exceptional
                circumstances may be required. For reimbursement, the member must have been eligible at the time of
                legal services and represented by a Local 2 panel attorney. On October 5, 2005 the Board of Trustees
                clarified the immigration code schedule; statue of limitation for reimbursement and claim request for
                duplicate transaction code for an eligible member or beneficiary is limited to once per 12-month period,
                with a maximum life benefit of three. Effective May 1, 2007, the Board of Trustees implemented a two-
                year waiting period for reapplication for any immigration code if there was a cancellation of services by
                the member after services were complete. Coverage excludes all biometric fees to include fingerprint
                fees and medical examinations.
