  1. A retiree may continue medical insurance if he/she and any dependents he/she wishes to over have been enrolled in the medical plan offered by Centenary College for the three months prior to retirement by paying the entire amount of the premium for the insurance. Once the retiree reaches age 65 the medical insurance available through the College becomes secondary to Medicare coverage. If the spouse of the covered retiree is under the age of 65 and otherwise covered by the insurance available through the College, full coverage will continue until he/she reaches age 65 when this insurance becomes secondary to Medicare coverage. All dental insurance ceases upon retirement.
  2. A retiree has the option to retain Centenary College’s life insurance coverage of $5,000. A retiree is responsible for payment of the insurance premiums. Retiree’s dependent’s are not eligible for coverage.
