If it reduces health benefits to older retirees on the basis of Medicare eligibility, an employer may avoid liability for age discrimination by showing either: that the benefit is equal -- that is, that accounting for the availability of Medicare to those 65 and over, the total benefits available to older retirees are no less favorable than those the employer offers to younger retirees; or that it expends an equal cost for benefits for older and younger retirees, and the reductions in benefits for older retirees are actuarially justified. Equal Cost Defense In the example above, the employer would have to show that -- accounting for the likelihood that more workers will qualify for disability retirement as they get older -- it costs as much to pay disability retirement to 55 year olds based on 5 extra years of service as it does to pay disability retirement to 30 year olds based on 30 extra years of service.

But what are the main benefits of starting to utilise GRC capabilities? The cost of disability benefits increases with age, and the benefit is part of a bona fide employee benefit plan that explicitly sets forth the benefit schedule. Absent explicit authorization for an offset, the ADEA generally requires that an employer offer an equal benefit to, or expend an equal cost for, older employees. Even though a portion of the benefit for older retirees will be provided by Medicare, the older retirees will receive an equal benefit, and the employer need not cost-justify its lower expenditures for coverage for these individuals.
