• Employees considering retirement may contact the HR office and ask for a basic checklist of things to consider before making their decision and what actions need to be taken by the employee.  

  • Benefits: Employees who retire from employment may be eligible to continue medical and/or dental benefits through the City. Employees who are approaching retirement and are interested in doing this should contact the HR office at 213-2090 to make their elections.  Vision insurance is not offered to retired employees and those wishing to continue with this coverage will need to select a private policy. If the retiree remains on one or both types of plans continually, they may stay with these benefits until they reach Medicare eligibility.
