2018 TRDP Changes

Retirees: What you need to know about the TRDP transition

The TRDP will end on December 31, 2018. Beginning on January 1, 2019, the TRDP will be replaced by the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP). FEDVIP offers a choice of 10 dental carriers, including Delta Dental.

We understand changes to your dental coverage may sound confusing. We’re here to help you know what to expect and what resources you have.

If you’re currently enrolled in the TRDP, you will not automatically be enrolled in a FEDVIP plan for 2019. You must take action to have dental coverage in 2019. Enrollment is handled through BENEFEDS, which is the government-authorized and U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM)-sponsored enrollment portal. If you intended to enroll in a FEDVIP plan before the end of the federal benefits open season on December 10, 2018, but were unable to for reasons beyond your control, visit benefeds.com to review your enrollment options.

Delta Dental will terminate our allotment of your retirement pay at the end of 2018 and BENEFEDS will start your new allotment beginning in 2019. You don’t need to do anything to set up an allotment for your FEDVIP premiums. As part of the FEDVIP enrollment process, you’ll answer questions regarding your eligibility and available funds and/or allotments.


Delta Dental has proudly served the TRDP military retiree community for the last 20 years and we’re pleased to be one of your choices in FEDVIP.
