(a) The Retiree Health Care Trust Fund (RHCTF) shall be an irrevocable trust fund established under Section A8.432, and separate from the Health Service System trust fund described in Charter Sections 12.203 and A8.428, to provide a funding source to defray the cost of the City's, and other Participating Employers', obligations to pay for health coverage for retired persons and their survivors entitled to health coverage under Section A8.428. RHCTF assets shall be held for the sole and exclusive purpose of providing health coverage to eligible retired persons and their survivors, and to defray the reasonable expenses of administering the RHCTF, including but not limited to educational, actuarial, consulting, administrative support and accounting expenses associated with the RHCTF. Subject to the approval of the Board of Supervisors by resolution, the Retiree Health Care Trust Fund Board (Board) may, upon the adoption of a resolution, authorize specific payments for specific amounts enumerated in the resolution shall pay for such administrative costs from the RHCTF.
(b) The Board shall govern the RHCTF. The Board shall consist of the following five trustees: the City Controller, the City Treasurer, and the Executive Director of the San Francisco Employees' Retirement System, or their respective designees; and two trustees elected from among active employee and retired members of the City's Health Service System. One of the elected trustees shall be an active employee member and one shall be a retired member as of the date of their respective elections. Each elected trustee shall serve for a term of five years. No person may serve simultaneously as a trustee on the Board and as an elected or appointed member of the San Francisco Employees' Retirement System Board or the Health Service System Board.
