When are retirees allowed to make plan changes?
Retirees are allowed the same Open Enrollment period as active employees. At the time of retirement, a retiree may also elect another plan offered by the district.
Other events which would allow a change outside of Open Enrollment include the following:
- A change to the district contribution resulting in an out of pocket increase to the retiree.
- A retiree requests to move to a PPO Retiree 65+ (EGWP), CompanionCare Medicare Supplement, or Medicare Advantage Plan. Retirees enrolled in Medicare can enroll in these plans without waiting until Open Enrollment.
