You must be employed at your institution for at least five years. Years of service + your age must equal 65. You must have ICUBA medical coverage at least three months before retiring. You must be “Actively at Work” on the day prior to your retirement. Note: You must be enrolled in medical coverage in order to enroll your spouse and/or dependents. 2
May I add Dependents at the time I retire? ◦ No, you can only elect retirement coverage for those eligible dependents covered under your plan at the date of your retirement. May I add a Dependent to my retirement coverage once I am already on the retiree plan? ◦ You can only add a dependent acquired after the date your retiree coverage goes into effect if you acquire the dependent child due to a life status change such as marriage, birth or adoption. 3
Notify your Human Resources (HR) Department that you plan on retiring and when. Your HR Department will notify ICUBA of your retirement date. A Retiree Election Package will be mailed to you. The package will detail your available medical, dental, and vision options along with the associated costs. You will have up to 30 days after your retirement date to make your election (Note: Your deductible amount will not reset if you choose an ICUBA Retiree Medical Plan). Once your election form is received, you will be sent billing coupons and the option to elect Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). There will be an annual open enrollment period in which you may change your elections. Once you cancel your retiree medical insurance, you are unable to reinstate in the future. 4
