State Retirees Won't Pay Health Insurance Premiums Beginning October


State government retirees won’t have health insurance premiums deducted from their pension checks, starting October 1st.

 

A Sangamon County judge has issued a preliminary injunction blocking the state from taking that money… but the ruling came down too late to add the money back into September checks.

 

The state has been collecting those premiums since last year and will apparently have to refund the money with interest… although it’s not clear how or when that will happen.

 

Judge Steven Nardulli’s ruling is based on the recent Illinois Supreme Court decision which found that free or subsidized health care benefits for public sector retirees are protected under the state constitution.
