The following provides a brief overview of the plan.

Medical Plan Highlights

Retiree Health Plan Coverage

A retired League City employee may be eligible to purchase continued Health Benefits coverage through the City. To receive continued coverage, retirees must inform Human Resources no later than 30 days prior to the retirement date that they elect to continue coverage as a Retiree. Retirees may elect to continue coverage for any eligible dependent that was covered on the date of retirement.

Retirees or dependents who elect to continue coverage and later decides to discontinue such coverage, will forfeit their option to select retiree coverage again at a later date.

If an employee retires at age 60 or older, with 20 years of TMRS experience and the most recent five years with League City, the City currently will pay the retiree (not dependent) cost of continued coverage at 100% until the age of 65.

An employee who retires from TMRS on disability retirement, and has worked with the City of League City for a minimum of five years, and has at least ten years of TMRS service is eligible for a portion of their health insurance to be paid, based on the employee’s age at time of disability retirement.

Please contact Human Resources with additional questions.
