Retiree Eligibility


Regions understands that making the decision to retire can be exciting and worrisome. In either case, it will be important that you decide with the right information on hand. The details below explain the eligibility requirements for benefits available to a retiring associate.


Eligibility for benefits is based on your hire date and the number of years of service.

  • Age 55 with five years of continuous employment if hired prior to November 4, 2008
  • Age 55 with 10 years of continuous employment if hired on or after November 4, 2008
  • Age 65 regardless of hire date

Retiree Medical Benefits

If you leave the company, have medical and/or dental benefits as an active associate and meet this eligibility requirement, you will have the opportunity to elect retiree medical and dental benefits. Benefits are provided at full cost to the retiree. Medical and dental benefits are available until age 65. You must elect these benefits within 30 days of your date of termination. If you are interested in electing these benefits as a retiree, contact the HR Connect Team at 1-877-562-8383 to request an election form and receive information regarding the monthly cost. While Regions intends that these plans be continued indefinitely, it reserves the right to amend or terminate them at any time.

If you do not meet the age and service requirements listed above, or if you only need to continue your coverage for up to 18 months, COBRA coverage is available to you and your eligible dependents at a cost significantly lower than retiree coverage. See Leaving Regions and Benefits Continuation for more information.

Retiree Vacation Payout

As an eligible Regions retiree, you are entitled to receive a vacation payout in the amount of your annual grant less any time taken.
