I retired in 2011 from a utility under the union contract

Customer Question

I retired in 2011 from a utility under the union contract that was in effect at the time.
The new contract that was ratified recently calls for the elimination of their retiree health insurance and they are cutting off mine.
Can they legally do so?

They can cut off future benefits. It sounds like your benefit is earned called vested. As such, it needs to be honored and paid and your union should ensure that or pursue a lawsuit to get a court order enforcing your rights.
