Retirees

  • 25 Year Club. For information about 25 Year Club membership, including the most recent membership lists, please visit 25 Year Club.
  • Address, phone number and name changes. Western Michigan University retirees may use the Employee Self Service system to make these changes. Please visit Personal Data Updates for instructions.
  • Health care benefits. Certain WMU retirees are eligible for a WMU retiree health plan (please contact your Human Resources Representative to verify eligibility). For Medicare eligible retirees, the WMU retiree health plan is secondary to Medicare and those enrolled in the plan must be enrolled in Medicare parts A and B. This plan does not require Medicare part D coverage because creditable prescription drug coverage is included with the retiree health plan.

Western Michigan University's Community Blue PPO health plan is administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Health care benefits include medical, prescription drug, dental and vision. Vision benefits under Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan are administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP).
