2019 TRDP Changes

Retirees: What you need to know about the TRDP transition

The TRDP ended on December 31, 2018. Beginning on January 1, 2019, the TRDP has been replaced by the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP).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 were 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.

Enrollment in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) takes place during Federal Benefits Open Season, which usually runs from the second Monday in November through the second Monday in December each year. Since the 2018 open season has ended, you must be newly eligible or have experienced a qualifying life event (QLE) in order to enroll in FEDVIP for 2019 coverage. Otherwise, the next opportunity for you to enroll in FEDVIP dental coverage will be during the 2019 Federal Benefits Open Season.
