Please note:

The June retirement payments reflect health insurance rate changes. The July retirement checks disbursed on July 26, 2022, reflect a COLA increase of 3% on the first $15,000 as well as Medicare Refunds for those eligible. Questions related to the Medicare Refund should be directed to Health Benefits.
