Health Benefits for Retirees

  1. If you belong to NMFT or CSEA, review your Bargaining Unit Contract.   If you belong to NMAA, NMAA Confidential, or Supervisors, review pertinent eligibility under the rules and regulation section regarding retiree health benefits.

  2. Review the Benefits Management Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Retirement Health Benefits. Use this as your check off list of things to do. Check the resources tab on this page.

  3. If retiring over age 65, review other health benefit options. Check the resources tab on this page.

  4. View  rates charts for Under 65  and Over 65 plans.  Also note: rates and plans are subject to change each Open Enrollment. Rates for the following year will not be posted until the month of August after negotiations and contract approval.

  5. Retiring at the end of the school year
    If you are in paid status on the last day of the school year, your benefits will continue through September 30 of that same year. Benefits Management will send a health benefit retirement letter to you during the summer. The letter will explain how to continue your benefits and will include the rate chart showing your monthly premiums beginning October.

Retiring during the school year
Benefits Management will send a health benefit retirement letter to you during your retirement month. The letter will explain how to continue your benefits and how to pay any premiums due once you retire.

The Retiree Health Benefit Open Enrollment Event will be held in August. Your Open Enrollment packet will be mailed to your home prior to the event.
