Changes to retiree health insurance

You're on your path. What's your destination? 2018 changes to retiree health insurance may affect your decision to retire; we can help you chart your course.

  1.   Understand the changes

Changes to retiree health insurance will become effective on January 1, 2018. Employees’ eligibility for the university’s retiree health insurance plans will differ based on whether the employee falls into category A, B, C, or D. Find where you fit. Make an informed decision.

Get the history on the Total Rewards Advisory Committee (TRAC) website.

   2.   Find where you fit 

   

  3.   Know your options

Choosing when to retire is an individual decision. One of the factors you must consider is how you'll provide high-quality insurance for you and your dependents. Make an informed choice by using these tools.

Attend seminars and one-on-ones
Understand your pension and retirement savings

Your pension is not affected by the changes to retiree health insurance. However, some employees may wish to understand their pension payout as they consider whether retiring in 2017 or some future year is best. Use these resources to help gather information customized to you.

  • Use the pension calculator to help estimate your pension payout if you were to retire at various points in the future.
  • Login to myLearn to get guidance on using the online pension calculator.
  • Don't forget to check your Total Retirement Statement. In summer 2016, the University of Missouri System mailed you a retirement statement designed to help you evaluate your current retirement savings. Check back with your statement and see if you're on track for the retirement you want.
  • You can also schedule a one-on-one with Fidelity or TIAA to receive free, objective retirement guidance and education.
