Retiree health insurance
Being eligible for retirement benefits does not automatically make you eligible for retiree health insurance. Prior to selecting your retirement date, you should contact your employer or health insurance provider to determine if you will be eligible for retiree health insurance. If you have state-sponsored health insurance, you should contact PEBA at 888.260.9430 for assistance.
Last day on payroll is indicated in Section IV. This should match the date that will be provided by your employer when certifying your last day paid.
