Pre-65 Retirees

Pre-65 Retirees that qualify as a USG retiree, will continue their current USG medical, dental, vision and life insurance in retirement. If you have questions about whether you qualify, then please contact your local HR office.

Remember to enroll in Medicare A & B at least 60-90 days before your 65th birthday to qualify to continue USG healthcare.

For more information, view the 2020 Comparison Guide and USG Retiree Planning Guide.

Medicare-Eligible Retirees

Healthcare Coverage

If you are retired and you are 65 and older, you must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. Upon retirement, Medicare will become primary and you must select a Medicare Supplement, Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (PDP), or Medicare Advantage plan through the Aon Retiree Health Exchange. USG provides annual funding in a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) which can be used to reimburse you for eligible premiums and expenses, including most prescription drugs and out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, Medicare Supplemental premiums and vision/dental premiums. USG is pleased to contribute up to $2,736 to your HRA in 2021.
