Dental Insurance Subsidy
Retired members may be eligible for a monthly subsidy for dental coverage. The dental subsidy is not available to qualified survivors.
Who is eligible?
If you are a retired member, you qualify for the dental insurance subsidy if you meet the following requirements:
- Are enrolled in a Board-approved dental plan,
- Have at least 10 years of service, and
- Are at least 55 years of age.
What is the subsidy amount?
You are allowed 4% of the maximum amount for each year of service (YOS), up to the current monthly maximum subsidy, $44.60, effective January 1, 2019.
YOS x 4% x Maximum Subsidy Amount = Monthly Subsidy
With 20 Years of Service, $35.68 is your monthly subsidy and would be applied toward your dental premium. 20 YOS x 4% x $44.60 = $35.68.
How do I enroll?
It is not necessary to apply for this benefit. Any eligible retiree enrolled in a Board-approved dental plan will automatically receive this benefit.
