MERS Health Care Savings Program
Livingston County currently provides eligible Non Union and MAPE Court employees with a MERS retirement health care savings account. The County makes a quarterly contribution to the employee’s accounts based on length of service. This contribution is intended to be used by the employee to pay for health care expenses in retirement.
Who is Eligible?
- Full-time, Non Union employees hired prior to March 17, 2003 who are eligible to receive a MERS pension benefit from Livingston County and opted out of receiving retiree health care in retirement.
- Full-time, Non Union employees hired between March 17, 2003 and October 31, 2009 who are eligible to receive a MERS pension benefit from Livingston County
- Eligible employees covered by the MAPE Court bargaining agreement. Please see your union contract for more information.
