Review this Retiree Checklist for a simple way to determine what you need to do and how you get it done now that you’ve retired.
The Intel Foundation matches the time that Intel employees and U.S. retirees spend volunteering in schools and non-profits with a cash donation. For every hour that Intel U.S. retirees volunteer, the Intel Foundation will match those hours with a grant once the organization reaches 20 hours for the year. The volunteer hours of all Intel employees and U.S. retirees are accumulated to determine the total annual grant. It’s that simple. To submit your hours, fill out this form online. See Intel’s complete guidelines for this program.
Deadline to submit 2015 volunteer hours: January 15, 2016. Any 2015 hours submitted after that date will not be eligible for the Intel Involved Matching Grant Program. Grant payments will be sent to recipients in Q2 2016.

Intel’s retiree health program has two elements:
Who is eligible for Intel’s retiree health program?
If you meet any of the retirement eligibility rules, you will be eligible to participate in the IRMP medical or vision plans.
If you were hired before January 1, 2014, a SERMA will be established upon your retirement from Intel if you are a U.S. employee at the time you retire and meet any of Intel’s retirement eligibility rules.
On or after January 1, 2014, if you separate from Intel or transfer from an Intel SERMA participating entity to a non-participating subsidiary or entity, your past years of service for the purpose of calculating SERMA will be forfeited. For example, you are not eligible for SERMA if you were:
SERMA is provided to help purchase health insurance for you and your eligible dependents once you have retired from Intel and have met the eligibility requirements.
When you retired from Intel as a U.S. employee, Intel established a SERMA for you. You may use your SERMA credits to pay for Intel Retiree Medical Plan premiums, or you may reimburse yourself for eligible non-Intel-sponsored health care premiums.
SERMA may be used to increase your health insurance choices and help you stretch your SERMA credits. You have the option to use SERMA to pay for all or part of your IRMP premium or to reimburse yourself for the cost of other eligible health insurance premiums.
For additional information, contact the Intel Health Benefits Center at 877-GoMyBen (466-9236), or online at My Health Benefits.
Using SERMA for non-Intel-sponsored health care premiums
You may use your SERMA credit to reimburse yourself for premiums paid for you and your eligible dependents until you exhaust your account. As long as you are not enrolled in IRMP, you may use your SERMA credit toward other health care premiums. Eligible reimbursements may include premium payments for:
If you are enrolled in IRMP, you may also use your SERMA credit toward other eligible health care premiums. For example, if you are on the IRMP plan and your spouse is enrolled in a non-employer-sponsored medical plan, you may now use your SERMA toward both your IRMP premium and your spouse's non-Intel premium expenses.
For information on your SERMA balance, contact the Intel Health Benefits Center at 877-GoMyBen (466-9236), or online at My Health Benefits under Your Spending Account tab. The Your Spending Account website allows you to:
Note: If you are a new retiree, the Your Spending Account tab will not be available to you until 45 – 60 days AFTER your retirement date. If you have questions please contact the Intel Health Benefits Center at 877-GoMyBen (466-9236).
The IRMP is the medical plan available from Intel Corporation to eligible retirees and their eligible dependents. The plan is designed to provide access to comprehensive medical coverage for retirees and their eligible dependents who are Medicare-eligible.
If you are not Medicare-eligible (typically if you under age 65, you are not eligible for Medicare), you may enroll in the CIGNA Coinsurance Plan.
If you are Medicare eligible (typically, age 65 and over), you may enroll in either the CIGNA Indemnity Plan with RX or the CIGNA Indemnity Plan without Rx. The difference between the plans is the “with Rx” plan includes a prescription drug benefit, whereas the “without Rx” plan does not.
For additional information, please contact the Intel Health Benefits Center at 877-GoMyBen (466-9236), or online at My Health Benefits.
You have two vision plans from which to choose—VSP Basic Vision Plan or Vision Plus Plan. Vision care is administered through VSP. VSP provides high-quality care, and you will be able to choose the provider and eyewear that’s right for you and your budget. If you wish to have vision coverage, you will need to enroll you and your dependents into either the VSP Basic Vision Retiree Plan or the VSP Vision Plus Retiree Plan during your enrollment period.
