Retirees Health Benefits

At Simon Fraser University we offer post-retirement health and dental benefit plans. Your employee group and date of hire determine your eligibility, as indicated below. Please review the fact sheets and plan details, ensuring you select the links applicable for the plan you qualify to join. If you do not qualify to join either of these two plans, then you will have the option to convert to an individual plan with Pacific Blue Cross within 60 days of retiring.

Closer to your retirement date you will receive a package which includes the election forms (if eligible) to join the retiree health benefit plans.
