Changes in Retiree Health Insurance Impacts Net Benefit Payments


Due to the increased cost of County-sponsored health insurance plans, some VCERA retirees have noticed a change in their December 31, 2019 net benefit payment. Insurance plan premium changes took effect with the December payment in order to prepay the benefits available to enrollees in January 2020. Consequently, VCERA retirees enrolled in one of the County-sponsored plans will see a change in their net benefit payment from VCERA.

VCERA has no control over the cost of retiree health insurance. If you have questions about a County-sponsored plan, please contact Patty Vandewater at or (805) 662-6791.
