When you retire, you’ll keep your HRA Account balance. Although you won’t receive additional Credit contributions to your HRA Account, you can use any remaining Credits to be reimbursed for eligible health care expenses.* If you retired on or before August 31, 2020, you are not eligible to participate in the HRA. If you retire and then return to covered employment, you will accrue Credits in your HRA when you begin working again.
* The $100 that is deducted from retirees’ monthly pension benefit for Plan Coverage is not an eligible health care expense.
