*Mandatory Retirement Plan Healthcare Important Information
Note: According to the current plan in effect, the beneficiary(ies) designated on the Retirement Account are a factor in determining the availability of health care for a surviving spouse or beneficiary. It is critical that employees who are anticipating their spouse to be eligible to receive a healthcare subsidy, the spouse must be named as primary beneficiary on the retirement account. Under current rules, this along with other criteria including the years of service requirement will determine state subsidy toward the cost of the premium amount for the spouse/beneficiary.
