Full report in PDF format

  • The Department of Labor and Employment Security has taken steps toward implementing our recommendations for determining the future cost of Special Disability Trust Fund claims, improving program administration, and evaluating fund activities. Based on these actions, the Department:
  • Determined the Special Disability Trust Fund has an unfunded liability of $4.7 billion.
  • Recommended to the Governor that the program be abolished but that claims already accepted continue to be paid until the unfunded liability is eliminated.
  • The Legislature will have the opportunity to consider options for the Trust Fund during the 1997 Legislative Session.
  • (For the original report, please see Report No. 94-20 Performance Audit of the Special Disability Trust Fund, published in December 1994.)
