The Southern California Public Safety Retiree Medical Trust (the “Trust”) was established by the Alhambra Police Officers’ Association. The Trust is an employee benefits trust designed to provide financial support during your retirement, in the form of payment toward retiree medical costs. Your Association has negotiated an employer contribution into this Trust; specific language can be found in your Memorandum of Understanding. By negotiating a contribution to the Medical Expense Reimbursement Plan of the Southern California Public Safety Retiree Medical Trust, your Association is proactively planning for your retirement by pre-funding the continually increasing expense of retiree medical. For more information, please click on the “Trust Documents” tab and navigate to the “Summary Plan Description” which provides a brief summary of the plan.
The Trust is highly tax-favored: The contributions are made with pre-tax dollars; the Trust earnings are not taxable; and when you begin receiving benefits in the future, they will not be taxed (unlike pension payments, which are taxed).
