Re: Government Pensions and FIRE

if a municipal pension promises you health care for life, does this mean just until medicare kicks in? or after that do you still have access to the private health plan as well. in the military, i believe tricare/private insurance rolls over into medicare and you don't get both.

Re: Government Pensions and FIRE

Federal civilian employees have primary care with Medicare at 65, with your regular insurance becoming the secondary carrier.
