2020 Retiree Healthy Savings Plan
Your share of insurance premiums is determined by a formula that considers your age and years of service at retirement and the program under which your benefits are payable. If you are looking for an idea of what premiums would be for your particular circumstances, use the retiree insurance premium estimator. For additional details, see the Summary Plan Description (SPD) for the Retiree Healthy Savings Plan.
