  • Vesting healthcare benefits (not pension)

    Hello folks

    Hopefully I won't come under fire for this question - no pun intended

    Are there any civil jobs within NYC, NYS or even the federal govt that after a 5 year period, you can leave and continue your health coverage paying premium similar to what the active employee pays? I don't need pension, just health coverage. I'm in my early 40's which means Medicare/Medicaid won't kick in till 65. I'm hoping to retire with some level of financial security by 50 and then volunteer my time to some local programs I believe in and many of them don't offer benefits. My career so far has been in IT

    Thanks

    If I remember correctly new york state vested health care benefits will not kick in until you reach what would have been the year you could have collected your full service pension. Not collectable immediately upon vesting . Don't know about the feds. State law governs all state and local government pension rules.

      Anybody else who have an idea of jobs that'll match my requirement? Federal or other state jobs would do too since a lot of IT work is done remotely these days anyways. Thanks

        Let me ask another question. Any govt job out there that'll provide health benefits starting at age 55 with just 5 years of service? Thanks

          So let me make sure I understand you:
          You want a Government job, work the least amount you can, and receive lifetime medical, paid for by taxpayers.

          Site rules don’t allow me to tell you what I think…

          Get a job and EARN benefits.
