Summary:
Provides background on voluntary employees' beneficiary associations (VEBAs), which are tax-advantaged trust funds created to finance many aspects of employee welfare, including retiree health insurance benefits. Demonstrates circumstances under which using VEBAs to fund retiree health insurance can benefit both unionized firms and workers. Discusses mechanics of VEBAs, role of VEBAs in chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, benefits and risks associated with VEBAs in unionized firms, and related legislation.
