Credit for Baltimore Represented Employees who do not use tobacco Baltimore represented employees who attest that they and their covered family members don't not use tobacco will receive a $15 credit per month towards their required contribution for medical plan coverage.

  • You must attest that you and your covered dependents don't use tobacco products to be eligible for the credit.*
  • The credit is only available to employees enrolled in an eligible Northrop Grumman Health Plan medical option.** If you're enrolled in an ineligible medical plan option or elect “No coverage,” you're not eligible.
