The Board of Trustees has established reimbursement procedures for the Welfare Fund which they may change from time to time. The Fund Office will follow the reimbursement procedures. The Board of Trustees of the Welfare Fund has delegated full discretionary authority to the Benefits Appeals Committee of the Board of Trustees to collect and settle Reimbursement claims.

If you sign a Reimbursement Agreement, the Fund may reduce its share of the recovery for its proportionate share of attorneys’ fees and its share of your out-of-pocket expenses. The Trustees or Appeals Committee have the discretion to settle reimbursement claims or liens. Other guidelines apply to the recovery available by the Fund. Contact the Fund Office for more details.
