If you choose COBRA, your medical, dental, and vision coverage continues up to 18 months after retirement. You’ll receive a COBRA enrollment packet three weeks after you retire. 

Your other option is Pre-65 Retiree medical, dental and vision coverage. You can continue to remain enrolled in this coverage up to age 65. 

When you select one of these options, you decline enrollment in the other option.

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and some younger people with disabilities or certain conditions. Medicare has four parts:

  • Part A (hospital insurance)
  • Part B (medical insurance)
  • Part C (Medicare Advantage plans)
  • Part D (prescription drug coverage)

What’s available to help?

Truist understands that transitioning to Medicare can be challenging, which is why we offer Benefit Advocates , a service that provides one-on-one guidance, and ALEX Medicare , an interactive guided journey.
