Retired Employee Benefits
Welcome to the State Division of Personnel web site for medical and dental benefits for state retirees. This site contains information about the non-pension benefits you receive as a retiree from state service. It will be updated from time to time as new information about your benefits becomes available.
The State Department of Administrative Services (DAS), and not the New Hampshire Retirement System, administers your non-pension benefits. Individuals in the DAS Division of Personnel and Bureau of Risk Management share responsibility for managing these benefits. If you have questions about enrolling in a retired employee health or dental plan, you should contact the Division of Personnel.
As a retired State of New Hampshire employee, you may be eligible for medical coverage provided by the State. If you are under 65 and not Medicare-eligible, Anthem BCBS provides coverage for retirees under age 65 who plan to reside in or out of the New England area. If you are 65 or over and Medicare-eligible, your coverage is provided by the State through Anthem BCBS Supplemental plan. You may purchase dental coverage through the State's insured program with Delta Dental of New Hampshire.
If you are Medicare-eligible, you should also be aware that the State's retiree medical coverage includes comprehensive prescription drug coverage. For that reason, you need not enroll in the Medicare Rx program (also known as "Medicare Part D"). You may find the following materials helpful.

- Retirees Under 65 Residing Outside New England

Please call Anthem's dedicated line 1-800-933-8415 for questions regarding your medical benefits. Hours of operation are Mon-Thurs 8-8, Fri 8-5.
