Monthly Contributions

The State shares the cost of health coverage with you. While the State covers most of the cost, you must make monthly contributions determined by your annual salary. The following chart outlines monthly contribution rates for full-time members. Part-time members are required to pay a percentage of the State's portion of the monthly contribution in addition to their own. Special rules apply for non-IRS dependents (see MyBenefits.illinois.gov for more information).

Members who retire, accept a salary reduction, or return to State employment at a different salary may have their monthly contribution adjusted based upon the new salary. This applies to members who return to work after having a 10-day or greater break in State service after terminating employment. This does not apply to members who have a break in coverage due to a leave of absence.

Dependent Monthly Health Plan Contributions

In addition to monthly contributions for their own health coverage, members must make additional monthly contributions for dependents they cover. Dependents must be enrolled in the same plan as the member. The Medicare dependent monthly contribution applies only if Medicare is primary for both Parts A and B.

Member Optional Life coverage is available to active members, retirees and annuitants under age 60 at 1-8 times their Basic Life amount and to retirees and annuitants aged 60 or older at 1-4 times their Basic Life amount.
