If you are currently covered through the GIC as the surviving spouse of a state or municipal employee or retiree, the GIC will be mailing you a re-certification form in October.  You must complete and return this form to the GIC no later than Friday, November 9, 2012, to continue your GIC survivor coverage.  This audit of your continued eligibility is an important part of the GIC’s fiduciary responsibility.  Failure to complete and return this re-certification will result in the cancelation of your GIC health insurance coverage.  Your prompt attention to the re-certification process is appreciated.

GIC survivor coverage remains effective until the survivor remarries, fails to pay the premium, or dies, whichever comes first.  If you have remarried, the GIC will send you information about continuation coverage through COBRA.  Thank you for your assistance with this important audit.
