Subchapter 11 - PART-TIME EMPLOYEES GROUP
Section 17:9-11.10 - Coverage in retirement

Universal Citation: NJ Admin Code 17:9-11.10

Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023

(a) Participation in the Part-time Employees Group pursuant to this section shall not qualify the employee or faculty member for employer-paid or State-paid health care benefits in retirement. Upon retirement, such employees or faculty members who were enrolled immediately prior to retirement shall be eligible to continue coverage as a retiree at their own expense. Prescription drug benefits shall be provided through the Retiree Prescription Drug Card Plan (17:9-6.10 ).

(b) Whenever possible, the cost of retiree coverage will be deducted directly from the retirement allowance. Where the available retirement allowance is less than the charge for coverage, no amount will be deducted to pay for the cost of the coverage; instead, the retiree will be permitted to continue coverage if the retiree pays for the full cost of coverage in advance on a monthly basis.

(c) An eligible surviving spouse or eligible partner will be offered the opportunity to continue participation subsequent to the death of the retiree. Coverage will be limited to only those dependents covered at the time of the retiree's death. The surviving spouse or eligible partner must pay the full costs.

Amended by 48 N.J.R. 2387(a), effective 11/7/2016
