Dental Plans for Retirees

Your Dental Coverage

Dental plan options for retirees of all ages and participants on disability status are the same options that are available to active employees. As you consider your options, you may want to check which of the UPlan dental plans your dentist participates in and enroll accordingly. You can select any dental plan that is available in the area where you live or worked. You pay the full cost of the coverage you select. Statements will be mailed to you directly from your dental plan administrator.

For all of the dental plans, the annual maximum benefit is $2,000 per person per contract year.
