Health Insurance:

  • 3 to 12 months before retiring:
    • Check with your health benefits administrator
    • Investigate private health insurance if you’re not eligible for post-retirement coverage or need to supplement it

Health insurance is a major concern for most people when planning for retirement. We don’t administer health insurance benefits here at the Retirement System.

Your benefits administrator can give you important information about post-retirement coverage.
