Health insurance credits for retired school division employees other than teachers. Requires school divisions to provide a health insurance credit of $1.50 per year of service to non-teacher employees of a local school division with at least 15 years of total creditable service. In addition, localities may elect to provide such individuals an additional health insurance credit of up to $1 per month for each year of creditable service. However, the bill provides that the additional benefits for retired school division employees other than teachers shall not be paid to any such employee prior to July 1, 2021. This measure does not apply to any local school division employee who retired on disability prior to July 1, 2020, if this measure would reduce the monthly credit currently payable to such former member. Eligible employees who retired prior to July 1, 2020, and did not receive a health insurance credit prior to that date will only receive the $1.50 per year of service health insurance credit prospectively.
