ANOTHER PROBLEM SOLVED: Using benefits before retiring/terminating your employment

A GSU member contacted GSU regarding an issue with benefits. The employee had given notice of termination, but in the week leading up to their retirement date they used their benefits for medical issues. The insurance company rejected the claims. Lawrence Maier contacted the employer and, after going through all of the facts, it was determined that all of the bills were for the period during which the member was still an employee. The correct payments were sent to the employee. 

Make sure you take full advantage of your benefits before retiring or terminating your employment. Don’t wait until the last minute, as this can create problems. And for those with a Health Care Spending Account, don’t forget to claim what is allowed under the plan.
