The Santa Monica City Employees Coalition Benefit Trust was established on July 1, 2001 by the coalition of bargaining units representing all permanent employees of the City, except Fire and Police sworn personnel. The Trust was established to provide reimbursement to retired employees for part of their medical insurance premiums. Initial reimbursements to eligible retirees commenced on July 1, 2006. The Trust will not provide insurance for retired employees, but will provide partial reimbursement to eligible retired employees for some of the premiums they pay for health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance and/or long term care insurance.
