2016 Retiree Dental

New timeframe for making Anthem or Delta Dental benefit changes during the plan year: During 2015, retirees were able to add or drop dependents only within 31 days of a qualifying event. However, for qualifying events that occur on or after January 1, 2016, the time period to make benefit changes will move from 31 days to 60 days. Please note that benefit changes will continue to take effect the first of the month following receipt of all paperwork. However, enrollments for the birth or adoption of a child are retroactive to the date of birth or adoption.
