Pension Form 5500
Each year, the Company is required to provide information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Labor (DOL) regarding the Union Carbide Employees’ Pension Plan. This reporting requirement is generally satisfied by filing the IRS Form 5500, including all applicable Schedules and Attachments. The Company generally files the Form 5500 in mid-October for the prior year and posts a subset of the filing here, which provides the basic plan and actuarial information. The entire filing can be found on the DOL website at www.efast.dol.gov.
