HRD Reminder: Medical Insurance Coverage Upon Retirement
Please remember that to be eligible for retirement from the University of Hartford and the benefits associated with it, regular full-time faculty and staff must satisfy one of the following requirements:
Plan A: A minimum of age 55. Age plus completed years of service must equal 75 points on or before Dec. 31, 1998.
Plan B: A minimum of 10 years of service. Age plus completed years of service must equal 75 points on or before Dec. 31, 2005.
Plan C: A minimum of 10 years of service. Age plus completed years of service must equal 75 points after Dec. 31, 2005.
Faculty and staff who meet the requirements of Plan A or Plan B may be eligible for subsidized medical insurance benefits into retirement. To be eligible for continuation of medical insurance benefits into retirement, an employee must have been enrolled in a University-offered group medical insurance plan for a minimum of two years immediately prior to retirement. Active dependents are eligible for continued coverage per plan guidelines; however, no new dependents are eligible to enroll for coverage after the onset of retirement.
Faculty and staff who meet the requirements of Plan C noted above may be eligible for unsubsidized medical insurance benefits into retirement; however, these employees are allowed to decline continuation of coverage under the pre-65 group medical insurance plan and then re-enroll in the University's group Medicare Supplement plan within a 30-day window of their attainment of Medicare eligibility (usually on the first of the month in which they attain age 65).
If you are contemplating retirement or nearing the end of an approved voluntary phased retirement plan, please contact your designated HR Manager at least three months prior to your intended retirement date to ensure timely processing and enrollment in the appropriate medical insurance plan.
