Understanding Your Investment Choices
The MERS Retiree Health Funding Vehicle (RHFV) has added additional investment options to assist you in meeting your Plan’s asset allocation targets. This program offers you a simple solution to a complex problem: how to establish a qualified medical trust with cost-effective diversified investments. The Retiree Health Funding Vehicle helps employers set aside assets for funding their Other Post Employment Benefits (OPEB) liability, while benefiting from investing in MERS investment options.
