Health Care Considerations

Determine the source of medical insurance for you and your family post retirement.

  • If you are seeking to continue your insurance coverage at retirement, contact your agency benefits coordinator or contact the Retirement Benefits Division of Benefits Administration at 800-253-9981 to discuss eligibility and coverage options.
  • If you are enrolled in a reimbursable account through the Flexible Benefit Program, consider how your retirement will affect this account. For more information contact your Flexible Benefits Program.
  • Contact the Social Security Administration to begin evaluating the Social Security benefits, including Medicare, that may be available to you.
