RE: Change in Retiree Health Benefits Eligibility Rules
To simplify administration and respond to employee concerns, UC is changing the eligibility rules for retiree health benefits. Below is a link to a letter from Dwaine Duckett, Vice President of Human Resources – Office of the President, announcing that policy-covered employees eligible for UCRP on June 30, 2013 will be subject to the eligibility rules that were in place as of that date. This means that those employees who previously had been moved to the new 2013 eligibility rules because they were not vested in UCRP on June 30, 2013 or because their age plus years of UCRP service was less than 50 at that time will no longer be subject to the eligibility rules that went into effect on July 1, 2013. The links below provide more information about this change.
Thank you for your assistance in getting this good news out to faculty and staff.
