When to file Form 6200

For insurance coverage to begin the same month as your retirement payment, you must file a Form 6200 with our office by the last day of the month prior to the month you retire.

For Example:​

  • Retirement Date - May 1
  • Form 6200 Due By April 30
  • Insurance Effective Date - May 1

Deadline

If you miss the above deadline, you can still submit a Form 6200. Your Form 6200 must be filed with our office within 30 days of the first day of the month in which you retire.

​​​For Example:

  • Retirement Date - May 1
  • Form 6200 Due By - May 30
  • Insurance Effective Date  - June 1
Note: If you miss both deadlines you will remain in the default health insurance single plan and are ineligible to select a new health insurance plan until the next open enrollment period, unless you experience a qualifying event.

Please remember

  • If you do not return a health insurance application either waiving coverage or selecting a plan, you will be defaulted into a single health insurance plan.
  • Your retirement can be effective without insurance coverage.
  • You are responsible for filing your insurance application by the due date.
  • Documentation for health insurance dependents/spouse is required.
  • Waiting until the last minute to file an application will cause delays in receiving your insurance card and accessing benefits.
