HEALTH BENEFITS IN RETIREMENT
Some retirees of the Police and Firemen's Retirement System will qualify for health coverage under the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) upon retirement.
- For retirees who meet specific service credit or
other retirement criteria, the State or — in certain cases — the employer pays some, or all, of the cost of the SHBP coverage.
- Retirees who do not qualify
for State-paid or employer-paid coverage pay the full cost of the SHBP coverage.
- Certain PFRS retirees may be eligible for SHBP coverage at a reduced cost under the provisions of Chapter 330, P.L 1997.
