As previously communicated in the February 6 edition of E-lines, the Special Election Window which provides Flight Attendants with the ability to allocate some or all of their Profit Sharing to their eligible retirement plan account is open through 2359 CT on Sunday, February 11, 2018. Flight Attendants will have the ability to defer a portion of their Profit Sharing to any combination of the following:
Profit Sharing payments will be paid out on February. 27, 2018, and will be will be issued in a separate check in the same way you are paid for normal payroll process (i.e., direct deposit or physical check). Flight Attendants based at International locations will receive their Profit Sharing as part of their March 1, 2018 pay check.

Special thanks to the Local Council & Council 7 Member, Heidi Yoder for her work in preparing the Q & A addressing these unique issues.
