- Health care;
- Group life insurance; and
- Dental coverage.
Former employees’ survivors may be eligible for these benefits too.
The Group Insurance Commission (GIC) administers the post-employment benefits. You can go directly to the GIC website for information about their insurance coverages and premium rates.
