If a retiree marries after the effective date of their retirement, the new spouse will not be covered under the retiree insurance plan. Children born to this marriage will be eligible for coverage. See "Note" below.
NOTE: It shall be the responsibility of affected individuals to contact the Human Resources Department and the Payroll Office when changes occur in any of the above insurance categories for retirees, e.g., birth of a child, death of a spouse, spouse turns 65. Such changes in eligibility will require the eligible spouse to complete new insurance forms under their own Social Security Number. Failure to do so could result in a loss or a decrease of benefits.
