University of Nairobi set to begin a post-retirement medical scheme

  1. Most University staff during the period they serve in active employment live in fairly decent environment. The members of staff concentrate their lifetime and efforts on teaching, research, and fully serving the University in various capacities. It will be imperative that on retirement such members of staff maintain a fairly dignified way of living. The Pension Scheme provides assurance of an income upon retirement. The proposed Post Retirement Medical Scheme would ensure provision of health care upon retirement.
  1. The University of Nairobi (UON) as an employer provides medical cover to active members through group medical scheme, administered through the University Health Services (UHS).  Upon their retirement, the members of staff cease to receive benefits from the group medical scheme of University. The sudden withdrawal of medical benefits enjoyed by members coupled with increased age and the shift of medical burden to the members is traumatic because medical requirements and costs tend to increase with age. Further, medical costs tend to escalate in one’s retirement.
