Coverage at Retirement

As a member of PSPRS, when you retire, your coverage under the Public Safety/CORP Cancer Insurance Policy Program (CIP) will continue for you under the following provisions:

  • You receive 5 months of continued CIP eligibility at no cost to you for every one year of credited service, including the months of Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP) participation, if applicable, with PSPRS.
  • Once your “no cost” eligibility period expires, if you have had a positive diagnosis of cancer, you will have the opportunity to continue your eligibility in the program by paying the annual premiums directly to PSPRS as established by the Board of Trustees. 

For a full listing of the terms of the plan, along with the Schedule of Benefits, which provides the Benefit Provisions, Amounts and Limits, refer to the PS and CO Plan Description and Schedule of Benefits document located in the Forms & Resources section under Cancer Insurance & HIPAA Forms.

To submit a claim for the CIP, you will need to Apply for Benefits.
