Your Pension Check
Check Schedules, Direct Deposit, Tax, and Verification of Income
Directly depositing your monthly pension check into your bank account is the fastest and most convenient way to receive your pension. Avoid the trip to the bank and sign up today.
Payment is deposited electronically into your checking or savings account on the first day of each month (unless the first day of the month falls on a weekend or a bank holiday). Because of processing time, your first and/or second payment may be sent by mail.
- Complete the Direct Deposit Form
- Include a voided check or a pre-printed savings deposit slip
- Return the form and the voided check or a pre-printed savings deposit slip to:
Central States Pension Fund
P.O. Box 5113
Des Plaines, IL 60017-5113
Or fax to: (847) 518-9791
If you change banks in the future, you will need a new form.
Send My Check by Mail
Every effort is made to ensure your check is received on the first day of each month. However, there is no guaranteed delivery date because of circumstances beyond our control. If your check is mailed outside of the United States, extra time should be allowed for delivery. In the event a replacement check is necessary, one might not be issued until the 10th day of the month.

Verification of Income
When you need to provide Verification of Income (VOI) for financial or other reasons, we have all the information online.
After you log in, instantly print out a VOI letter which details your monthly pension amount or disability benefit by clicking on the Verification of Income link on your dashboard.
If you don't have an online account, register here.
Typically you need a VOI letter when proving your income to a third party such as a mortgage company, a landlord, or a government agency. Only those receiving a Retirement Benefit can view the VOI letter online.
If you need to speak with a Benefits Specialist, contact us.
