Medical coverage?

Postby jeverts » June 27th, 2014, 10:17 am

Hi all, hoping I'm not the only one in this situation. Anyway, my wife is in the process of retiring (38 yrs) this summer due to a medical emergency and is doing so rather abruptly. She's 64 y/o but turns 65 mid november. I'm younger 60 and will retire after next year (16 yrs of service) so, for a short while, I'll be covered under her state medical plan. Question is when she turns 65 and uses medicare and the state plane is secondary, will I still be covered under the secondary state plan until I'm 65? I get a lot of, I think so, probably etc. I'm looking for a more definitive answer. Anyone have experience here with a similar situation? Thanks, John Everts

Hey John. I would suggest you give a ring to your regional UniServ office. Your field rep can help you with that question or connect you to someone at NJEA HQ who can help.
