Payment, Tax, and Insurance Information

 

Payments

Retirees receive a monthly retirement benefit. Payments are made the last working day of each month.

Tax Witholding

The easiest way to change your tax withholding is to access your account on our Retiree Self-Service website and make your change online, or download a federal and/or state tax withholding form. Complete and return or fax this to ERS.

Special Note: If the form is received in our office by the 18th of the month, the tax change will take effect that month. However, if the tax form is received after the 18th, then the tax change will take effect the next month.

Insurance

Health Insurance

Please note: ERSGA can not change your health insurance coverage. There is an Open Enrollment period for retirees in the fall of each year for coverage for the upcoming calendar year.

There are situations in which coverage can be changed outside of the Open Enrollment period, like divorce or death of spouse.
