When can I retire with the Town of Nantucket?

You need to be eligible by Barnstable County Retirement Association (BCRA) or Mass Teachers’ Retirement System (MTRS) to retire, then you would also be considered eligible with the town and this would include the health insurance. You would be eligible to carry your Health Insurance throughout retirement as long as you are pulling a pension compensation.  Please refer to RETIREES webpage for more information.

If you do not pull compensation at time of retirement, you will be eligible to do so once you start pulling for yourself and spouse – no insurance with the Town  (this means if you retire, but choose not to pull a retirement pay check, you can COBRA the insurance(s) until you decide to pull a compensation check.)
