40A:10-34.2. Premiums or charges; employee contribution; retired employees
Any employer entering into such a contract is authorized to pay part or all of the premiums or charges for such contracts and may appropriate out of its general funds any money necessary to pay such premiums or charges or portions thereof. The contribution required of any employee toward the cost of such coverage may be deducted from the pay, salary or other compensation of such employee upon an authorization in writing made to the appropriate disbursing officer.
The continuance of coverage after retirement of any employee may be provided at such rates and under the conditions as shall be prescribed in the contract, subject, however, to the requirements hereinafter set forth in this section. The contribution required of any retired employee toward the cost of such coverage may be paid by him to his former employer or in such other manner as the employer shall direct.
Retired employees may be required to pay for the entire cost of coverage for themselves and their dependents at rates which are determined based upon the reasonable expected use of retired persons.
