Yes. Your eligible surviving spouse is entitled to health care coverage. A spouse receiving a Survivorship Option will have premiums deducted from the monthly benefit if his/her pension is sufficient to cover the premium cost. If it’s not, or if your surviving spouse does not receive a Survivorship Option, he/she will have to pay the Retiree Health Care Trust directly for his/her coverage. Refer to the CTA Retiree Health Care Plan Enrollment Guide for details.
