    FAQs This page contains Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Health Fund. Should you have a question or concern regarding your health coverage, contact the Benefit Office at 754-777-7735 or info@725benefits.org Health Fund Frequently Asked Questions Q. Who are my eligible dependents? A.

When do I become eligible for benefits? A. You will become initially eligible for benefits on the 1st day of the month after you have accumulated contributions paid by your employer of 400 or more employment hours during a 5 consecutive month period. ​ Q. How do I maintain my continued health care coverage? A. Once you have passed initial eligibility, to maintain your coverage, you must work at least 100 hours per month. If you do not work 100 hours per month but have sufficient hours in your hour bank to make up the difference, your coverage will be continued. ​ Q. I worked over the amount of hours needed for coverage, what happens to those additional hours? A. For any hours you work over 100 in a month, those exceeded hours are placed into your "hour bank", the maximum amount of exceeded hours allowed to be placed in the hour bank is 1,000 hours (10 months of coverage). You may utilize hours in your hour bank to assist you in maintaining coverage (i.e. You only worked 60 hours in a month, so you will be short by 40 hours for coverage but your hour bank has a balance of 200 hours. The Fund will withdrawal 40 hours from your bank and add those hours to the 60 hours you work to ensure you have continued coverage. After the withdrawal, your hour bank balance will be 160 hours).
