Early Retiree Health Insurance

Once of the main enablers to retiring in my forties was being able to get retiree health insurance through my company. Without good affordable health insurance, I probably would not have taken early retirement.

It seems that businesses and companies now realize good affordable health insurance is an opportunity to help people who retire early. Retiree Health Access is a program that is working with businesses and insurance companies to create large pools of early retirees that can help keeping health insurance costs affordable. According to the article, if employees qualify for the plan, they won't be turned down due to health status.

If successful, this sounds like a program that can help more people choose early retirement.
