Former employees and first responders of Hampton Township will lose their health benefits.
In a letter sent out to retirees earlier this week, the township said due to revenue loss they will no longer pay for healthcare coverage. The letter also said retirees will be given a $1,000 check to ease the transition.
A retired resident said they are disappointed with the recent announcement.
“I guess there is nothing a lot of anybody can do with it at this point,” a retired resident said. “They say they don’t have enough money, but they keep hiring employees. So, they must have some employees and then they are trying to take my benefits from us after I put 37 years in here.”
The letter said retirees’ benefits will expire on November 30.
