Our retirees are an important part of the Caltech legacy. For that reason, we strive to provide our current and future retirees a sustainable, viable, and quality program of health care benefits.

 If you are eligible for the Institute’s retiree health benefits, Caltech helps you pay for medical, dental and vision coverage for yourself and your eligible spouse or domestic partner. You can choose from a range of Institute-sponsored medical insurance options, including HMO plans through Aetna and Kaiser and PPO plans through Aetna.

Call the Caltech Retiree Service Center to help you review your options and choose the plan that's right for you. The Caltech Retiree Service Center advisors are an extension of the Caltech & JPL Benefits offices.
