Turning 65 Soon?

You're typically eligible for Medicare on the first day of the month you turn 65. Be sure to contact Social Security three months before you turn 65 to initiate Medicare coverage. For more details, read Becoming Eligible for Medicare


Can I Deduct My Health Care Premium(s) From My Monthly ERFC Pension Benefit?

If your monthly benefit (after taxes) covers the premium(s), the ERFC office will process the deductions from your monthly benefit. 


Change of Address?

If you have health insurance through FCPS and you move, please fill out a Name/Address Change Form for Retirees and Beneficiaries (ERFC 29B). ERFC will then notify your health insurance company of your new address.
