2019 USG Retiree Transition WebEx Sessions & Onsite Meetings!

On June 6, we hosted two WebEx sessions for USG Pre-65 retirees and active USG employees who are age 65 and over and planning for retirement. The WebEx presentations were be led by representatives from the Aon Retiree Health Exchange and the Social Security Administration.

During these sessions, we covered the following topics:

  • Information about the Aon Retiree Health Exchange

  • Understanding Medicare

  • Enrollment Options

  • Paying for Coverage

  • HRA Review and Eligibility

  • Enrollment Support and Timeline

  • Social Security & Medicare

A group of seniors are laughing and holding hands.

For those who were unable to attend one of the WebEx sessions, a recording of the presentation is now available for you to view.

The September onsite retiree sessions are designed for USG Pre-65 retirees (those becoming age 65 within the next 12-months) and active USG employees, age 65 and over, and planning for retirement in 2020.

USG Pre-65 retirees and active employees, age 65 and over, will have the option to attend one of three onsite sessions. Each onsite session will last approximately three-hours to allow time for each presentation, questions from USG retirees, active employees, session participants, in addition to a presentation intermission.

Important: Space is limited at each onsite session, so the invitations will require an RSVP and will be sent specifically to Pre-65 retirees who will be turning age 65 and transitioning off of the USG healthcare plan. Active employees, age 65+ and planning to retire are also invited to attend.

For questions: Contact us at with questions.
