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.
