Hawaii Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund
The Employer-Union Health Benefits Trust Fund oversees health and life insurance benefits for 171,025 public workers, retirees and their dependents. The EUTF faces about $14.5 billion in unfunded liabilities, according to the latest actuarial valuation report. That reflects the amount taxpayers owe for future retiree health benefits. The EUTF has had to seek ways to minimize the increases in premiums as it tries to provide reasonably priced benefits for public employees.
