Virtual assistance on Medicare, Social Security and health savings accounts available

In preparation for open enrollment for 2021, virtual presentations and one-on-one assistance will be available for employees who are approaching age 65 in 2021 to help them understand Medicare, Social Security and the effect those could have on health savings accounts (HSAs).

Resources available to employees:

The “Thinking about Medicare?” video will demonstrate to employees how Medicare and Social Security affect their Purdue health coverage and HSA.

Virtual presentations will be offered on the dates and times listed below. Register for the presentation by clicking on the day you would like to attend. There is no registration deadline.

Each presentation will provide answers to questions such as:

  • What do I do for open enrollment if I am planning to retire during 2021?
  • I am turning 65 in 2021. Should I take Medicare coverage if I will still be working?
  • I am thinking about beginning to draw Social Security benefits in 2021. What do I need to consider?
  • Am I eligible for an HSA if I am turning 65 in 2021?
