BRANCH 1477 EYEGLASS PLAN
In 1981 under President Bourlon, Branch 1477 amended its bylaws establishing a Plan specifically designed to provide a subsidy to the members of the Branch, active or retired and their dependents toward the costs associated with the examinations of eyes. The fund is maintained by the members at .50 per pay. The contribution even today in 2015 has not changed. The first reimbursements subsidized the examination up to $35. However recent changes in the bylaws have expanded the benefit to include costs associated with the examination up to $60 for members and $50 for dependents, once annually.
