CalPERS maintains the dental benefit enrollment records for all state retirees, processes retirees' dental enrollments, and submits eligibility information to the appropriate dental plan.
It is important that you keep your home address current at all times, even if your retirement check is deposited directly into your bank account. This helps ensure you receive timely information about your state-sponsored dental benefits that may be mailed to your home address by CalHR or CalPERS. Report address changes to CalPERS at the address below (be sure to include your Social Security number and telephone number):

If you are a retired state employee and have any questions regarding your eligibility, contact CalPERS, Member Account Management Division toll free at: (888) 225-7377/ TTY (877) 249-7442.
During open enrollment, eligible retirees can enroll in a dental plan, change plans, add or delete dependents from your coverage, or cancel your enrollment. You do not need to take any action if you want to keep the same plan and coverage.
If you wish to make a change to your current dental plan enrollment, you must submit your request to the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) no later than October 6, 2017.
Changes you make during the 2017 open enrollment take effect January 1, 2018.
You may contact CalPERS by phone, by completing and submitting an Dental Plan Enrollment/Change Request, or by sending a written letter to CalPERS. To expedite processing, it is suggested you phone in your request following the instructions described below.
