    Retiree Insurance
    School Districts are required by law to allow vested Non-Teacher and Teacher Retirement participants, who are eligible for insurance at the time of retirement, to continue their health insurance coverage with the current carrier at the same premium as active members. 

    Once Human Resources is notified of your intent to retire, a letter will be sent to you regarding continuing coverage and will contain the current premiums. Medical and/or Dental can be continued. If you do not elect continuing coverage within one year, you will no longer be eligible to participate.
