Health Insurance For Retired Participants

The City of Chicago collects 1.45% of annual salary for a participant’s coverage in Medicare for all employees hired after April 1, 1986.

The Firemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund serves only as a conduit to enroll eligible members in the City’s employer sponsored health care plans and to collect and forward authorized payment of premiums from your benefit check to them.
