City of Chicago
2016 marked the end of a three-year phase out of City of Chicago (“City”) retiree healthcare plan coverage. With the exception of those who retired prior to August 23, 1989, retirees will no longer be covered by a City-provided health plan. Going forward retirees must procure healthcare options on their own.
