New Health Plan Eligibility Requirements for 2012

Every year at its July meeting, the Board of Trustees evaluates the earnings requirements for Health Plan eligibility. Due to the continued decrease in contributions under the television agreement, steadily rising health care costs and uncertainty in the financial markets, the minimum earnings required to earn health coverage has been increased by 2% for eligibility commencing January 1, 2012. Here are the new requirements.

Eligibility Commencing on or after: Plan I Earned Requirements Plan II Earned and Days Requirements Plan II Age and Service Requirements
01/01/12 $30,750 $15,100 or 76 Days (no change to the Days requirement) $10,900 with 10 or more health years and age 40 or older
