HELPS

HEALTH CARE ENHANCEMENT FOR LOCAL PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICERS

HELPS is a retiree health care benefit that provides a tax-free distribution of up to $3,000 from retirement plans to help retirees pay for health insurance or long-term care insurance.

summary

In 2006, the IAFF won an unprecedented congressional victory with the passage of the Health Care Enhancement for Local Public Safety Officers (HELPS) act. Under it, retirees can receive a tax-free distribution of up to $3,000 from retirement plans to help pay for health insurance or long-term care insurance premiums. The IAFF encourages affiliates to remind retirees about the HELPS benefit.

Under the benefit, the IRS will allow retired fire fighters to exclude from income distributions made from eligible retirement plans up to $3,000 annually to pay the costs for accident or health insurance or long-term care insurance. The funds can cover the retiree, spouse or dependents. The distribution must be made directly from the retirement plan to the insurance provider. Eligible retirement plans include qualified trusts, section 403(a) plans, section 403(b) annuities and section 457(b) plans.

For more information, visit the IAFF at http://www.iaff.org/ET/HELPS/HELPS.htm


IAFF Alumni

The Alumni program is designed exclusively to assist retirees and former members in continuing their relationship with the IAFF.

Membership in this free program allows Alumni members to benefit from select IAFF and Union Plus programs, services and discounts, such as automotive, consumer education, computers, clothing, healthy lifestyles, home improvement, financial/insurance products, mobile phones / calling plans, pets, legal services and travel.

Additionally, Alumni members can now subscribe to the International Fire Fighter magazine for a nominal price and will also automatically receive email communications directly from the IAFF that feature news and updates on fire fighter health and safety and local, state and federal politics.

Eligibility
All active-retired IAFF members are automatically members of the Alumni. Most former IAFF members with an inactive-retired membership status are eligible to participate provided that they retired or left their local in good standing. The final Alumni eligibility decision is at the discretion of the retiree’s former union.

Welcome Package
New IAFF retirees who are eligible for the program will automatically be sent an Alumni postcard with information on how to register online. Once registration is complete, a separate mailing will include an Alumni membership card and car decals within three weeks.

Contact the IAFF
Please contact the IAFF with benefit, eligibility, welcome package and other questions related to the IAFF Alumni program.
