Retirement Tip 9 – Paying for District Medical Coverage

Hi this is Debbie with CalRTA with
your tip from the retired teachers. This is retirement tip number nine. We’re
going to talk health insurance again. If you like your current medical and dental
insurance but those district paid benefits are going to end once you
retire, you can pay for those benefits yourself. California Education Code
section 7000 7008 says that the school districts have to give you the
opportunity to keep those benefits as long as you foot the bill. Again that’s
California Education Code section 7000 7008. For more tips and resources check
