Voluntary Dental Benefis
The Fund has partnered with Guardian Dental to offer a voluntary Dental Program to our annuitants and their eligible dependents.
All costs are to be paid directly to Guardian. The Fund will not handle any payment to Guardian for the cost of the dental program. If you choose to participate in this program, you will be solely responsible for all costs associated with the benefit. The Fund does not subsidize this program.
Single: $11.91 per month
Family: $31.46 per month
Single: $35.29 per month
Family: $67.28 per month
