Who We Serve

The Carpenters’ Pension Trust Fund of St. Louis (St. Louis Pension Plan) currently serves more than 13,000 active and vested deferred participants, along with over 7,000 present pension recipients. It is one of four pension plans that serve members of the St. Louis - Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council:
  1. Carpenters' Pension Trust Fund of St. Louis
  2. Carpenters' District Council of Kansas City and Vicinity Pension Fund*
  3. Carpenters' Pension Fund of Illinois* (Geneva)
  4. Kansas Building Trades Open-End Pension Fund*
    *These pension plans are administered separately. Please see link on the carpdc Pension menu for quick access information on these websites. Kansas Building Trades Open-End Pension Fund does not have an active website for members.
The St. Louis Pension Plan was established for the Carpenters’ District Council of St. Louis (St. Louis Council) on May 1, 1969. Since then, several Councils merged into the St. Louis Council and several pension funds merged into the St. Louis Pension Plan. These mergers are summarized as follows:

Corporation) in Geneva, IL. At the time of the merger, Geneva Pension Plan participants were
