The Details

What you need

If you are a retired teacher from a city, town or school district whose school district participates in the GIC’s RMT program, had basic life or health coverage through the school system you retired from on the date of your retirement, and receive a pension from the Teachers’ Retirement Board, you are eligible for GIC coverage.

To add a spouse or dependent to coverage, documentation (e.g., copy of marriage or birth certificate) is required to accompany the form.

 If enrolling within 60 days of a qualifying event, you must attach proof of the qualifying event to your enrollment form.
