Article 57
88 Benefit

Section 1

The current terms of the “88 Plan”, a jointly administered Taft-Hartley multiemployer welfare plan, shall continue in full force and effect, except as amended below, to provide medical benefits as set forth in the “88 Plan” document to former players who are (1) vested due to their Credited Seasons or their total and permanent disability under the Retirement Plan or the Disability Plan, and (2) determined by the governing Board of the 88 Plan (the “88 Board”) to have “dementia,” amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and/or Parkinson’s disease as defined by the parties. The 88 Plan, and any and all future amendments thereto, will be incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement; provided, however, that the terms used in such Plan and the definitions of such terms are applicable only to such Plan, and shall have no applicability to this Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms. The Plan Year begins on April 1.
