RETIREES

The General Agencies of The United Methodist Church (GAUMC) provides health benefits to retirees of the general agencies and Council of Bishops and their families.  See the About section for a full list of covered entities.

 

Medicare eligible retirees are eligible for a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) when they enroll in either a Medicare or Prescription Drug plan through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange.  The 2019 HRA amount for retirees is $2,100 and is $2,000 for spouses. 

Non-Medicare eligible retirees are eligible for medical coverage through United Healthcare, dental coverage through Delta Dental, and vision coverage through VSP.  Any retiree, regardless of age, who is eligible for Medicare is considered Medicare eligible.

Retiree Life Insurance is provided for those retirees who meet the eligibility requirements at the time they retired.  Some retirees who retired with less than 78 points and/or under the age of 62 are not eligible for retiree life insurance.
