Welcome  to Our Information Section for Retired Employees!

Retired employees of the Lafayette Parish School System enjoy many of the same benefits as our active employees throughout their lives as long as they pay their share of the premiums.  We have prepared an information booklet for our newly retired employees and for those planning retirement.  Please read through this publication for answers to the most frequently-asked questions about insurance coverage for retirees.

Retirees are eligible to participate in health insurance, life insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, and long-term care insurance. 

Retirees who are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B also have an opportunity that no other employees have: they may choose to enroll in Humana's private Fee-For-Service health plan instead of enrolling in the LPSS plan.  The advantages to joining Humana's plan include lower premiums and more benefits.  For more information, click on the links below.
