New Users
If you don’t have a personal carpdc.org account, you will need to create one in order to redeem your benefits online. To register, go to carpdc.org then select Register. Follow the prompts to set up your new account. Should you have trouble setting up your account and need assistance, please watch this video for more information. Please note call volume increases substantially during the first week of redemption, and there could be a longer wait time after May 20. Once your account has been set up, you are ready to redeem your Vacation Benefits on or after May 20.

Returning Users
If you haven’t logged in since last vacation redemption, it’s good to test your login and password prior to this year’s redemption. If you’ve forgotten your username or password, please click on the Menu icon in the top right corner of the carpdc.org home page, then select Forgot username/password. For password reset assistance, call MACRBS Participant Services at (314) 644-4802, and select option 9.

If you experience other issues while setting up your carpdc account or when logging in to redeem your Vacation Benefits, please call MACRBS Employer Services at (314) 269-5594, Monday – Friday, 8 am – 4:30 pm.

Please expect longer hold times beginning May 20 and the days to follow. We appreciate your patience.

Receiving Your Redemption
For all Vacation Benefits authorized prior to 12 pm on Friday, May 24, initial payments are scheduled to begin on Friday, May 31. After 12 pm on May 24, and before Friday, June 7, direct deposits will be made within 3 – 5 days from the date of redemption. After June 10, direct deposits may take up to 7 – 10 days. For mailed checks, please allow 7-10 working days to receive your check.

Ready to redeem? Go here after May 20.

Benevolent Fund Reminder
The Benevolent Fund, which was funded through mandatory contributions deducted from a member’s Vacation Benefit during Vacation Redemption, is no longer an active council benefit. The MACRC now provides benefits for a member killed on-the-job through the Midwest Coalition of Labor (MCL). Visit carpentersunion.org for more information.
