Retiree Status

The plan administrator determines ORP participants' eligibility for retiree insurance benefits that are provided by the Group Insurance Commission. A retiree is an ORP participant who meets these criteria:

  1. They must draw a retiree income from the plan.
  2. They meet one of these age and service requirements:
    1. For employees hired before April 1, 2012: Accrue at least ten (10) years of creditable service* and attain age fifty-five (55);
    2. For employees hired on or after April 1, 2012: Accrue at least ten (10) years of creditable service* and attain age sixty (60); or
  3. For all employees: Accrue at least twenty (20) years of creditable service* with no age requirement. They purchase retiree insurance coverage from the GIC (e.g., health care; life insurance; dental coverage).

* Total Years of Creditable Service for ORP participants is the sum of their Years of Participation in the ORP and any Creditable Service on file with the State Employees’ Retirement System.
