How to Enroll
Plan well in advance. Contact the UVA HR Solution Center, Medicare, and Social Security Administration office using the timeline below for assistance and enrollment forms. If you do not enroll within 30 days of retirement, you and your dependents may not enroll in the future. The only exceptions are:
- You are a state retiree enrolled as a dependent in your spouse’s active state employee health benefits. You may enroll in the retiree group within 30 days of the active employee ending state employment or retiring. To maintain eligibility for the retiree group, submit the waiver section of the Enrollment/Waiver form (contact the Solution Center for this form) within 30 days of retirement.
- You are a Virginia Sickness and Disability Program participant in long-term disability (VSDP-LTD), leaving LTD for retirement. You may enroll in the Retiree Health Benefits Program (regardless of whether or not you have maintained health coverage in the state program while receiving LTD benefits) as long as there is no break in LTD benefits before retirement. You must enroll within 30 days of retirement.
