Transitioning from Employee to Retiree Status
As you get ready to retire there are many things you need to consider with regard to your health benefits. Understanding how your benefits will change in retirement is extremely important. These videos will guide you through the steps involved in transitioning your health benefits from employee to retiree status.
Part One of Transitioning to Retiree Status provides an overview of how your health benefits might change as a retiree. https://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/health/healthvideos/health-video-transition-seminar-pt1.page
Part Two of Transitioning to Retiree Status covers topics including: Medicare, Medicare Part B Reimbursement and Enrolling in Retiree Health Coverage. https://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/health/healthvideos/health-video-transition-seminar-pt2.page
While many questions will be answered in these videos, individual and personal issues can best be dealt with on a one-on-one basis at a seminar.
