Overview

As a result of the passage of Proposition B on the June 2008 ballot, a Retiree Health Care Trust Fund (RHCTF) was established under City & County of San Francisco Charter (Charter): Appendix A8.432. The Fund is to be used to pay for the City’s contribution to the health care premiums of its retirees and their survivors. The fund is built through a 2% of salary contribution from City and County of San Francisco employees hired after January 9, 2009 which is matched by a 1% contribution from the City. Beginning in July 2016, employees hired prior to January 9, 2009 will also contribute a share of their salary to the fund with an equal matching contribution from the City, starting at 0.25% of salary each (employee and City) in Fiscal Year 2015-16, and rising by 0.25% of salary each fiscal year until it reaches 1% of salary each in Fiscal Year 2018-19. No withdrawals from the Fund other than for reasonable administrative expenses are allowed prior to January 2020.
