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. 336 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 eight-member board is a group of individuals that represent you, the retirees. The Board shall consist of eight voting members, and one ex-officio member.

  • One member who is an ARMB trustee under AS 37.10.210(b)(2).
  • One member who is a human resources official or financial officer employed by a political subdivision participating in the State’s retirement systems.
  • One member who is a Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) retired member, selected from a list of three individuals nominated by retiree groups that represent PERS members.
  • One member who is a Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS) retired teacher or member, selected from a list of three individuals nominated by retiree groups that represent TRS members.
  • One member of the State’s retirement systems who is a retired member under PERS Tiers I, II, or III, TRS Tiers I or II, or the Judicial Retirement System (JRS).
  • One member who is an active or retired member of PERS or an active or retired teacher or member of TRS who is vested in the PERS Tiers I, II, III or TRS Tiers I or II retiree plans. If an active member, the person should not be more than five years from eligibility for retirement.
  • One public member who is not a member or beneficiary of the PERS system, the TRS system, or the JRS; this person must have at least five years’ relevant experience and expertise in health care administration, finance, or governmental budget issues, or other background helpful to the Board’s mission.
  • One member who is an active member in good standing of the Retired Public Employees of Alaska (RPEA), selected from a list of three proposed candidates submitted by RPEA.
  • The Commissioner of Administration, or designee, shall serve as a non-voting, ex-officio member of the Board.
