CalPERS dependent verification due June 1
This is an important notice to all of our CAPT Brothers and Sisters to remind you to verify your dependent(s’) healthcare eligibility before June 1, 2020. Failure to do so will result in your dependent(s) being deleted from the CalPERS health coverage effective July 1, 2020.
State law requires state employers to verify the eligibility of their employees’ dependents every three years for employer-sponsored health coverage benefits. All BU 18 employees should have received a detailed letter from CalPERS outlining the instructions to verify your dependents’ eligibility with your employer through your department’s personnel office.
CalPERS warns that if your dependent(s’) eligibility is not processed by June 10, 2020, you may be charged retroactive premiums through accounts receivable with the State Controller’s Office.
Dependent eligibility includes current spouses and domestic partners registered with the California Secretary of State’s Office, and natural-born children, including adopted children, children placed for adoption, and current step or current registered domestic partner children up to age 26.
To get you started, provided below are the instructions outlined by CalHR to verify each dependent’s healthcare eligibility.
If you have any questions, contact your personnel department or your local chapter.
