The State of Delaware Pension Plan (Chapter 55, Title 29, Delaware Code) mandates that all University salaried and hourly staff participate upon date of hire. At retirement, State Pensioners are eligible to enroll in blood bank, health, dental, and vision insurance and are covered by a $7,000 death benefit, all through the State Pension group. Health insurance plans are the same as those for active employees until the retiree is age 65, at which time Medicare supplemental coverage is available. Premiums for health insurance are based on years of service, if the retiree's date of hire is 7/1/91 or after. If the hire date is prior to 7/1/91, premiums are similar to those for active employees.
