I am retired but my previous employer still pays a part of my medical aid contribution on my behalf. Do I need to get an IRP5 from the employer even though I am not on their payroll any more or is this income exempt from tax?

Does my ex-employer need to give me an IRP5. I asked them for one, but they say I do not need one since I am not on the payroll any more. When I visited SARS office they insisted on an IRP5 for the medical contribution my ex-employer pay.
