How do I opt-out of dental benefits, if I don’t need them?
If you are a Full Time Employee, you will not be able to opt-out of Dental benefits as they are a mandatory benefit.
If you are a Partial Load Employee, you have the option to opt-out of Dental benefits. If you wish to opt-out of dental benefits you may do so with the understanding that you would not be eligible for this benefit again unless you meet the terms and conditions in the future.
To start the process, you would need to log onto the Employee Direct Access using your single sign-on. Click on the Benefits icon on the springboard. Once on the Benefits work area, click Change Benefits Election.
