Annual Leave Payout for Health Insurance Premiums

Jan 27, 2022, 10:13 AM by MOSERS

When you retire can you turn in your Annual Leave to pay for your health insurance to cover the rest of the year you retire?

Yes, there is an option to pre-pay health insurance premiums in retirement with a payout for unused annual leave. However, this is outside of the scope of benefits that MOSERS administers.

Please contact your HR office, MCHCP, and ASI Flex for details on the forms you will need to complete and the associated deadlines. Additionally, we encourage you to check with your human resources office about policies on annual and sick leave accrual and usage before retirement. 

Please note that the amount of your unused annual leave has no impact on your MOSERS retirement benefits.
