Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I'm turning 65 on June 8. When is my last payment for my insurance premiums?

A: Your VCS insurance would terminate the last day of the month before your 65th birthday month.  With the above question, your last insurance payment would be in May and your Medicare coverage would begin June 1st.  (The first day of the month of your 65th birthday) Your dental coverage works the same way, it would terminate the last of the month before your 65th birthday month. You'll need to be sure to contact INHRA (VEBA) to cancel any automatic reimbursements sent to Valparaiso Community Schools on your behalf for your health and dental payments. 

Q: I'm turning 65, what about my spouse who is younger than me?

A: Spouses younger than 65 can continue on your health plan until their 65th birthday month.
