Effective January 1, 2024, benefits will change for Retiree Health Plan participants, their spouses, surviving spouses, and eligible dependents.

The Alaska Electrical Health and Welfare Fundís current retiree health plan will terminate December 31, 2023. Instead, the Fund will provide assistance to retirees in choosing individual coverage through Via Benefits. If you are eligible for a subsidy for your retiree coverage, you may also participate in a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) funded by the Fund to help pay for the cost of your new coverage.


The Fundís current retiree health plan will terminate on December 31, 2023. This change applies to all the Fundís eligible retirees regardless of their current medical plan election. All claims incurred for medical and pharmacy charges covered by the Fund on or before that date will be paid by the Fund.




If you have questions about this change, or need help contacting someone at Via Benefits, the Administrative Office is available by phone at (907) 276-1246 or toll free (800) 478-1246 or by email at: aetfhw@aetf.com.




It is necessary for the Board of Trustees to verify that our retirees and beneficiaries are receiving retirement benefits to which they are entitled. Each Retiree Signature Certification form must be signed before a Notary Public or an authorized Plan Representative, and the original must be returned to the Administrative Office by June 16, 2023.

Failure to return this form by June 16, 2023, could result in the suspension of your monthly retirement benefit.
