The United Furniture Workers Insurance fund was established in 1944. The idea was formulated to provide health insurance benefits for Union members at an affordable cost to protect the workers against the hazards of sickness, accident and death.
The Fund is a Union Fund originally set up in accordance with the Trust Law of the State of New York and regulated by the United States Government under the Employees Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
