Retiree Benefits Information
Benefited employees who have worked for the College for at least 10 years in a benefited position, who are not Medicare-eligible, between ages 55–64, and who are a retired PERS (Public Employees Retirement System) member, may continue group health benefit coverage for themselves and their enrolled eligible dependents upon retirement. Coverage through medical, dental, and vision plans must be continuous or coverage will be dropped.
Each year during Benefits Open Enrollment, August 15 to September 15, HR Benefits will reach out to retirees via email with updated benefits information, summary sheets, and rates. Retirees are responsible for ensuring that HR has their current email address. Send email address changes no later than July 31 to MyBenefits@cocc.edu. Retirees should check their email and spam folders in early-to-mid August for benefits information. HR Benefits may also be reached at 541-383-7217.
After a retiree determines their plan selections during Open Enrollment, they must visit the MyOEBB Member Module to complete the enrollment process, update user and dependent information, and obtain a benefit summary. Any member enrolled in a health insurance plan on October 1 will be solely responsible for paying the monthly premiums directly to the College on the first of the month. Checks need to be made payable to COCC and given to Payroll in Newberry Hall.
