PSEA offers group rates on dental insurance for retired and associate members, and surviving spouses.
We have four different plans from which to choose the one that is best for you and your family. Eligible dependents include your spouse and children up to age 26.
For your convenience, open enrollment takes place four times per year. Once you enroll in a plan, you may not change plans for twelve months. For this reason, we recommend that you thoroughly understand the differences in each plan and, if you wish to keep your current dentist, ask your dentist’s office if they take the specific plan you are interested in before applying.
Open enrollment for both dental and vision benefits occurs four times per year.
You will find enrollment forms on the plan description pages.
