Open Enrollment for 2024

We hope everyone has been enjoying the summer and is looking forward to the cooler autumn months.  The Employee Benefits Office is gearing up for Open Enrollment which will run between October 2, 2023, and October 27, 2023, for calendar year 2024 benefits.  There will be two in-person retiree benefits fairs this year:

Materials for Open Enrollment will be sent out in mid-September, so keep an eye out for it arriving in your mail.  Also pay attention to a form to elect how you would like to receive open enrollment materials next year for 2025 benefits.  There will be a postcard for you to let the Employee Benefits Office know your choice.  There will also be a summary of any changes for the upcoming 2024 benefit year included as well.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need further information.  (916) 874-7614 or


Delta Dental Update

Effective 1/1/2022, your dental coverage transitioned from Principal Financial to Delta Dental. We’ve received a number of questions about “when will I receive my Delta Dental card”. Delta Dental doesn’t issue cards and they ask that your dental provider use your Social Security number and the following group numbers:

Division Name Group Number Division Number
Retiree – Basic Dental Plan 21482 00001
Retiree – Enhanced Dental Plan 21482 00002

Please be sure to visit a dentist in the PPO network to maximize your savings.  These dentists have agreed to reduced fees, and you won’t get charged more than your expected share of bill.  Find a PPO dentist at  

You can reach Delta Dental for any questions about your benefits, or any of the discount programs at:  888-335-8227
