Employees nearing retirement can find information on how health insurance benefits will change by viewing a two-part video found at http://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/health/healthvideos/health-video-transition-seminar-pt1.page for part 1 and http://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/health/healthvideos/health-video-transition-seminar-pt2.page for part two. The videos areabout five minutes and four minutes long, respectively.
While the videos answer many questions, individual issues can best be addressed at a one-on-one Transitioning for Retirement seminar. These ongoing seminars are hosted by the NYC Office of Labor Relations at 40 Rector Street, 3rd floor.
To attend a seminar, you must register at http://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/health/active/health-active-seminars.page. You may also sign up for the seminar at www.nyc.gov/hbp by clicking the Featured Items flyer found at the bottom of the page. Periodically check the link, as additional seminar dates are added regularly.
With supervisory approval, seminar attendance is permitted during normal working hours, with the time used charged to annual leave.
For additional questions, you may contact the HR Customer Service Desk at 212-306-8000 or the ASK HR Mailbox at ASKHR@nycha.nyc.gov
