Dental & Vision

Dental Benefits

The GIC Retiree Dental Plan is provided through MetLife.

You can get reimbursed up to $1,250 a year for cleanings, fillings, crowns and other dental services. You pay less if you receive care from one of 370,000 participating dentists nationwide. You pay more if you receive care from a non-participating dentist.

You pay the full cost of this voluntary coverage. 

For more information, contact MetLife directly:


All state retirees, Elderly Governmental Retirees (EGRs), survivors and GIC Retired Municipal Teachers (RMTs who do not participate in the municipal health-only program) are eligible for the GIC Retiree Dental Plan.


You may join during Annual Enrollment, or within 60 days of a qualifying status change, such as when COBRA dental coverage ends, when you become a survivor of a GIC member, or at retirement. If you drop GIC Retiree Dental coverage, you may never re-enroll.
