When your retirement application is processed, we forward your insurance enrollment information to your chosen health, dental, and vision insurance carriers. You should receive insurance identification cards a few weeks after your pension begins.
As a retiree, your state-sponsored life insurance continues for you and your dependents at no charge to you. Your coverage is 25 percent of the coverage you carried when you left work; your dependents' policies are capped at $1,000 each.
Eligible dependents for health, dental, and vision insurance plans include your spouse (as long as he or she is not also enrolled separately as an eligible state employee or retiree) and your unmarried children by birth, legal adoption, or legal guardianship who are in your custody and dependent on you for support.
