    Our Benefits Staff can help you navigate your transition from Benefitted Employee to Benefitted Retiree.  Please contact us well before your retirement date so we can help you be sure you are ready!


    Did you know? It's important to sign up for Medicare before you turn 65 EVEN IF YOU DON'T PLAN TO USE IT RIGHT AWAY, or you could face expensive surcharges and service delays down the road.

  • Benefits Administration for Retiree Participants

    Once you are enrolled as a retiree, your Benefits are administered through a Third Party Administrator - you will work directly with them rather than OUSD Benefits Staff for coverage and billing questions.

    Please be aware that effective March 1, 2022 OUSD's new Third Party Benefits Administrator for Retiree and COBRA Participants is The P & A Group.  You should receive a letter soon introducing The P & A Group and explaining the plan.
