Who is eligible for GBP insurance benefits?
As an eligible State of Texas retiree, you have access to valuable benefits you earned through years of service to the state.
ERS’ health plans can help you and your family live a more healthy and financially secure life.
Are you eligible for Medicare, or becoming eligible soon? Learn how your state health benefits work with Medicare.
Your stable lifetime annuity payments are the result of your and the state’s contributions throughout your career, and ERS’ sound investment of those contributions.
As a retiree, you still have access to optional benefits that provide additional security and savings. But your options are different from when you were an active employee.
Notify ERS as soon as possible when you experience life changes such as marriage, divorce, death, Medicare eligibility or children getting their own coverage. There are possible benefits and coverage options available to you as a result of these types of life changes.
A new year and fresh start sound pretty good. Remember, it’s not just your calendar that starts over—many health insurance deductibles, coinsurance and out-of-pocket maximums reset on January 1.
