Optional Add-on Benefits

As a retiree, you still have access to optional benefits that provide additional security and savings. But your options are different from when you were an active employee.

Notify ERS as soon as possible when you experience life changes such as marriage, divorce, death, Medicare eligibility or children getting their own coverage. There are possible benefits and coverage options available to you as a result of these types of life changes.
