If you have to wait for a month from retirement for coverage to take effect, but also have no gaps, how does that work?
Nicole Strauch
34:38
Active coverage will end the last day of the month in which you retire. Your retiree benefits would be effective the first of the month. For example, if you retire 2/23, active coverage would end 2/28 and retiree benefits would begin 3/1.

Retiree rates are tiered: one rate for single coverage and another rate for family coverage.

was told to use end of semester 5/31 to retire from Butte and 6/1 to retire from STRS... so does health coverage still go to end of June in that case?
Christy Patterson
42:52
It would end 5/31.
Phoebe Hartt
44:54
So It would be better to date retirement 6/1
Christy Patterson

You will need to confirm and coordinate benefits through Butte's HR department.

Now do I wait to hear from HR? I contacted them in Jan, and they said it was too early to start the benefits process.
Valerie Rolph
01:12:41
If my husband has coverage now, and we opt out of coverage for him when I retire to save costs, but later we decide we want that double coverage, is that still an option?
Valerie Rolph
01:13:40
Do they have any options for long term care insurance?
Christy Patterson
