Retirees: What you need to know about the TRDP transition
You may have heard that the TRDP will end on December 31, 2018. Beginning on January 1, 2019, the TRDP will be replaced by the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). FEDVIP offers a choice of 10 dental carriers, including Delta Dental.
We understand changes to your dental coverage may sound confusing. We’re here to help you know what to expect and what resources you have.
The last day to enroll in the TRDP is October 31, 2018.
If you’re currently enrolled in the TRDP, you will not automatically be enrolled in a FEDVIP plan for 2019.You can choose a new plan from one of the 10 FEDVIP carriers, including Delta Dental, during the enrollment period.
Delta Dental will terminate our allotment of your retirement pay at the end of 2018 and BENEFEDS will start your new allotment beginning in 2019. You don’t need to do anything to set up an allotment for your FEDVIP premiums. As part of the FEDVIP enrollment process, you’ll answer questions regarding your eligibility and available funds and/or allotments.
