Section III: Additional Information

Second Domiciled Adult

An eligible employee who retires from DePaul University with a related or an unrelated Second Domiciled Adult (SDA) covered on the medical plan at the time of retirement may continue to cover the SDA as long as he/she continues to meet the Plan’s eligibility requirements.  Refer to the Over-65 Retiree Plan and Health Benefits Plans Summary Plan Descriptions for additional details regarding eligibility and coverage. 

The retired employee must pay the full cost of a Related SDA’s coverage regardless of the retired employee’s grandfathered group classification under the terms of the retiree medical plan.  DePaul will share in the cost of coverage for an Unrelated SDA based on the retired employee’s grandfathered group classification (Refer to the “Understanding Retiree Medical Plan Changes Brochure”).

If You Return to Work at DePaul After You Retire

If you are enrolled in the retiree medical plan and return to work in a part-time position at DePaul, you will continue to be eligible to participate in the plan; however, if you become eligible for part-time benefits, you will be offered the active part-time plan and will not be allowed back into the retiree medical plan at any time in the future.  If you are re-hired into a full-time position, you will not be eligible to participate in the retiree medical plan until you subsequently retire.
