Retiree Health Plan
Advisory Board


Learn about the advisory board and find meeting times and materials.

The Retiree Health Plan Advisory Board (RHPAB) was created through Administrative Order No. 319 to facilitate engagement and coordination between the State of Alaska’s retirement systems’ members, the Alaska Retirement Management Board, and the Commissioner of Administration regarding the administration of the retiree health plan.

The seven-member board is a group of individuals that represent you, the retirees. It consists of PERS, JRS, and TRS retired and/or active members, a public member, an Alaska Retirement Management Board trustee and an HR Official or Financial Officer employed by an entity that participates in the State’s retirement systems.

You are invited to attend or listen to the meetings, members are always welcome. If you would like to offer public comment for the board to review, send an email to: .
