How do I pay for my health insurance?

When you retire, MIT may subsidize the monthly cost of your health insurance plan. The amount of the subsidy depends on how long you have worked at MIT. To learn more about your monthly cost for health insurance coverage, visit Retiree Health Plans.
If you draw a pension from MIT when you retire, your health insurance premium will be deducted from your pension check. If your monthly premium exceeds your pension benefit, or if you do not receive a pension from MIT, you will be billed directly. 
The Retiree Dental Plan is administered through a third-party vendor. You will be billed directly for your dental coverage, even if you receive an MIT pension.
