How the Plan Works

RMTlarge

The Retirement Medical Trust (RMT) Plan provides a method for eligible plan participants to pay, on a non-taxable basis, for qualified expenses including medical, dental, and long term care premiums (as defined in the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 213) that are otherwise reimbursed by insurance.

The Retirement Medical Trust claims administrator, effective December 7, 2012, is Genesis Employee Benefits, Inc. (Genesis). Please view the letter mailed to all participants in November 2012.


Eligibility

The Trust Plan is not a voluntary benefit. Those employees who satisfy the definition of an eligible employee must have the cash value of their unused accumulated sick leave, if any, contributed to the Trust. For specific information on participation eligibility, cash conversion formulas of unused sick leave accruals, and County contributions, refer to your Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Exempt Compensation Plan, Employment Contract, or Salary Ordinance.

Employees retiring from the County with a disability retirement may be eligible to contribute a cash value of their unused sick leave balances to the trust, so refer to your Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Exempt Compensation Plan,  or Employment Contract for eligibility requirements.


Contributions

The Trust is funded by County contributions and/or the eligible cash value of the participant's sick leave upon separation from service. All funds contributed to the Trust are maintained in individual accounts administered by Voya exclusively for the benefit of the participant or the participant's eligible dependent(s).


Distributions

Upon separation of service and reaching the Normal Retirement Age, the account balance is available for reimbursement of qualified medical expenses on a non-taxable basis. Upon the death of an eligible individual, the surviving spouse shall become the beneficiary entitled to the rights and benefits under the plan.
