VBDF contributions fight for benefits

The Voluntary Benefit Defense Fund (VBDF) is used to initiate and/or participate in legal battles that may be necessary to protect Michigan school retirees’ benefits over the next few years.

To date, the fund has been used to educate legislators regarding defined contribution and graded premium insurance subsidy legislation; to research and investigate defined contribution and other plans in other states; to purchase the software needed to provide an effective grassroots network; to provide written information to legislators; and other activities necessary to the protection of school retiree benefits.
