Benefits Continuation after Separation from District
When you separate your employment form the District due to retirement, resignation or termination, you are no longer eligible for District-paid insurance coverage. You, your spouse and/or dependent children are eligible to continue insurance coverage for medical, dental, and/or vision if currently enrolled. Depending on your separation status, the following options are available for continuing these benefits:
- Retiree Group Coverage
Determining Last Day of Coverage as Active Employee
Upon your retirement, resignation or termination from the District, active employee insurance coverage for medical, dental, and/or vision will end. Your last day of coverage as an active employee is determined based upon a number of factors. Please contact the District’s Business Services Department at (816) 986-1000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your last day of coverage. Applicable insurance premiums will be deducted on your final payroll check from the District.
Continuation of Coverage- Retiree Group Coverage
If you are eligible to receive immediate retiree benefits from PSRS or PEERS, you and your eligible family members may continue participation in the District’s Retiree plan(s).
