If I retire and return to work at less than 75% FTE, am I eligible for active employee benefits?

No. Only employees in benefit-eligible positions are eligible for employee benefits, and employees must work at 75% FTE or more in an appointment duration of at least nine months to be benefit-eligible. (See Subchapter 320.050: Employee Status of the University of Missouri’s Collected Rules and Regulations.) As a retiree, you may be eligible for retiree benefits if you were enrolled in coverage prior to retirement. For more information on this, see the Retiree benefits overview webpage.
