You may continue your MNPS health plan coverage (medical, dental, vision, hearing) for yourself and any enrolled eligible dependents throughout your retirement if:
You have at least 10 years of active employment with MNPS
You begin receiving a monthly pension payment immediately following termination, AND
You have been enrolled in the group plan for three continuous years immediately prior to retirement
If you have at least 20 years of service with MNPS, you may defer commencement of pension and retiree benefits, and have benefits reinstated when your monthly pension begins. You and your eligible dependents will be enrolled for retiree coverage during your retirement appointment. See your Retirement Planning Guide for more details.
