Employees who newly retire (on or after January 1, 2013) are eligible to apply to continue their existing dental coverage with our group plan when they meet the following qualifications and act promptly:
- Must have a retirement date of 01-01-2013 or beyond, and
- Must be at least 62 years of age at retirement, and
- Must have worked a minimum of 750 hours for the employer and/or as a recognized community minister for at least 5 of the past 10 years, and
- Must have been enrolled in our group dental plan on the day immediately preceding the date of retirement.
If you meet those qualifications, use this Retiree Dental Enrollment Form (PDF).
Those newly retiring who do not qualify to continue their existing dental coverage with our group plan, but who were enrolled in the plan on the day immediately preceding the date of retirement may enroll for COBRA dental continuation. Do so by completing the COBRA dental enrollment materials which will be sent to the home address on file with our office when we receive termination of employment notification.
