CalPERS is requiring Re-Verification of Dependents

The Situation:

To ensure only eligible dependents of State employees are enrolled in employer-sponsored health coverage, California Government Code Section 22843.1 requires your employer to verify the eligibility of your dependent(s) at least once every three years.

  • Sixty (60) calendar days before your birth month, CalPERS will send you a letter providing the re-verification due date, listing the enrolled family members for re-verification and the acceptable re-verification documents.
  • You are to promptly provide re-verification documents to, and complete the Dependent Eligibility Verification Checklist (CalHR Form 781) with, your Personnel Specialist.
  • The Personnel Specialist will re-verify the same family members for dental and premier vision benefits, if enrolled.
  • Delay in providing re-verification documents to your departmental human resources (HR) office may result in your family members losing health, dental, and/or premier vision coverage. The re-verification period is based on your birth month. 

The following chart illustrates the schedule:
