On January 1, 2018, employees’ eligibility for the University of Missouri System’s retiree health insurance plans will change. That means employees who are eligible have only a few remaining months to consider if retiring in 2017 is the right decision for them. Choosing when to retire is an individual decision based on many personal factors, including age, years of service, pension benefits, other retirement savings, career aspirations, retiree insurance options both within and outside the university, and more.
On the Changes to Retiree Health Insurance webpage, faculty and staff can determine what access category they are in, find seminar dates scheduled on their campus, find out how to sign up for a one-on-one counseling sessions, access online tools, and learn the history of the changes. Use the resources available to educate yourself, so you can make the choice that is best for you.
