Guide for Non-Medicare Online Enrollment Sign-Up


Eligibility for retiree benefits

An eligible Retiree is one:

  1. Who has retired and is receiving pension disbursements from the City of Fort Worth Retirement System; or
  2. A retiree’s spouse, common law spouse, child of an enrolled retiree who is a natural child, foster child, stepchild, grandchild, domestic partner’s child, legally adopted child or child under the retiree’s legal guardianship or custodianship.

    Working retirees

Because eligible retirees pay little or nothing for their health care, if working retirees are eligible for benefits with their current employer, they must leave the city’s plan and elect for coverage for themselves and their spouse with their current employer.

However, should the retiree lose coverage or leave that job, they can return to the city’s plan within a 30 day time period. Note that the city has delayed the elimination of coverage for spouses of active employees for further study this year, to evaluate the potential loss of premium level compared to claims costs.
