The Board of Trustees for the Jefferson Federation of Teachers Health and Welfare Fund is pleased to provide you benefits currently offered under both the Health and Welfare Plan and the Cafeteria Plan. The Fund and the Plan were established on the basis of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the Jefferson Federation of Teachers and the Jefferson Parish School Board. They are both administered by a joint Board of Trustees, five of whom are appointed by the Union and five of whom are appointed by the School Board.
The benefits under the Plan are available only to those Employees and their Dependents who satisfy the eligibility requirements. Eligible Employees are covered under the Health and Welfare Plan without cost, and eligible Dependents are covered for dental and vision benefits only if elected and paid for by the Employee.
The staff of the Fund office of the Jefferson Federation of Teachers Health and Welfare Fund is available to assist Jefferson, Louisiana Parish Employees who need additional information about the benefits offered by the Plan.
