Other Retirement Benefits

Health, Dental, Vision, Employer-Paid Life Insurance and Various Voluntary Benefits

  • CSU retiree medical and dental benefits are available to employees (and their eligible dependents) who retire within 120 days from the date of separation from employment (see below for recent changes to retiree health and dental vesting).
  • Vision Insurance does not automatically continue into retirement. Vision insurance is a voluntary benefit and to continue it into retirement an employee must request enrollment by completing the VSP Retiree Vision Enrollment Form which is available at the campus benefits office or by visiting the CSU Retiree VSP Website. Once enrolled, the premiums will be deducted from the former employee's retirement check.
  • Employees may port the employer-paid life insurance plan, voluntary life insurance plan, and critical illness plan and pay for premiums once retired. Employees must already be enrolled in these plans at the time of retirement.
