    What is a FHA?

    • A.

      Future Health Account

    • B.

      An interest earning account that some IBM retirees have set up to pay for their current group premiums

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This means that a FHA can refer to a Future Health Account, which is an interest earning account that some IBM retirees have set up to pay for their current group premiums. It can also refer to an account that Fidelity administers. Therefore, all of these options are correct explanations for what a FHA is.

  • 6. 

    IBM is giving retirees two HRA options.  What are they?

    • A.

      Retirees can choose a higher HRA amount that would waive any spousal survivor benefits, or they can elect survivor coverage which will lower their HRA amount but gives their spouse a death benefit upon the retirees passing

    • B.

      They can opt to have their HRA put in a joint or separate account

    Correct Answer
    A. Retirees can choose a higher HRA amount that would waive any spousal survivor benefits, or they can elect survivor coverage which will lower their HRA amount but gives their spouse a death benefit upon the retirees passing
    Explanation
    Retirees have two HRA options offered by IBM. The first option is to choose a higher HRA amount, which would waive any spousal survivor benefits. The second option is to elect survivor coverage, which will lower the HRA amount but provides a death benefit to the retiree's spouse upon the retiree's passing.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Why would a retiree opt for the higher HRA amount?

    • A.

      To be mean-spirited to their spouse

    • B.

      If a retiree is divorced or they are single, it may be beneficial to waive the survivor benefit in exchange for a higher HRA amount

    Correct Answer
    B. If a retiree is divorced or they are single, it may be beneficial to waive the survivor benefit in exchange for a higher HRA amount
    Explanation
    A retiree may opt for a higher HRA amount if they are divorced or single because in such cases, they may not have a spouse who would benefit from the survivor benefit. By waiving the survivor benefit and choosing a higher HRA amount, the retiree can potentially receive more financial support for themselves, which can be advantageous in their individual circumstances.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Why would they opt for the lesser HRA amount?

    • A.

      Because financially they just don’t need the money

    • B.

      Taking the lower amount will insure that their spouse receives 50% of the HRA upon the retiree’s passing

    Correct Answer
    B. Taking the lower amount will insure that their spouse receives 50% of the HRA upon the retiree’s passing
    Explanation
    By opting for the lesser HRA amount, the retiree ensures that their spouse will receive 50% of the HRA after their passing. This suggests that the retiree prioritizes the financial security of their spouse over their own immediate financial needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    Correct Answer
    B. They will receive a letter from Budco in November that contains an election form that the retirees will need to fill out and send back to Budco
    Explanation
    Retirees will receive a letter from Budco in November that contains an election form. They will need to fill out this form and send it back to Budco to elect their desired HRA.

    • C.

      They will default to the lower amount with the surviving spousal benefit

    Correct Answer
    C. They will default to the lower amount with the surviving spousal benefit
    Explanation
    If retirees do not make an election, their HRA will default to the lower amount with the surviving spousal benefit. This means that they will receive a lower amount of HRA and also have the option to provide a benefit to their surviving spouse.
