Retiree Benefits

Pre-65 Retirees

Action Required: When you enroll in a healthcare plan for 2019, you’ll also need to certify yours and your age 18 or older dependent(s) tobacco use status during Open Enrollment.

For 2019, you will continue to have access to USG group healthcare, life, dental and vision coverage. Additionally, retiree Life Insurance Rates will increase. To view the rates, click here.

The 2019 Open Enrollment period — October 29 through November 9, 2018 — is your once-a-year opportunity to change coverage (if currently enrolled).

If you would like to keep your current coverage, it will roll over to the new year with 2019 rates. Remember you must take action to certify your tobacco status.

For more information, view the 2019 Comparison Guide and 2019 USG Retiree Benefits Summary.

Retirement Transition Meetings

These sessions will target Pre-65 retirees who are 1-2 years away from turning 65 and transitioning onto the Aon Exchange. The purpose of these meetings is to align Pre-65 retirees with the resources and information needed to prepare them for their transition onto the exchange.

The topics that will be discussed during these sessions are USG Benefits, Social Security, Medicare and the Aon Retiree Health Exchange. The meetings can last up to 3 hours, which includes time for questions and answers. Registration is not required to attend these sessions.
