The Working Spouse Incentive Program at Mo-Kan Sheet Metal Workers Welfare Fund was implemented in January 2011 and has saved the Fund and its members a considerable amount of money over the two years it has been offered as a benefit. If you are an actively working sheet metal worker and a member of Mo-Kan Sheet Metal Workers Welfare Fund and your spouse has or has access to a qualified medical health insurance plan through his/her employer, you can benefit from this program. The cost savings is proven in two ways: those actively working member spouses who participate are getting 100% of their primary medical health insurance premium reimbursed up to $200.00 a month, and because these spouses have another insurance company paying primary on their medical health expenses, the Fund is saving money as well.
