Am I Eligible for Pre-Tax Medical Premiums in Retirement?

Jan 11, 2024, 11:33 AM by MOSERS
Why are retirees not eligible for pre-tax of medical premiums?
MOSERS cannot withhold medical premiums for retirees on a pre-tax basis because to be pre-tax, they must go through the cafeteria plan. Contributions to the cafeteria plan may only be from active employee wages. Cafeteria Plan guidelines state that only active employees are eligible for the plan.
