California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) Dependent Re-Verification Requirement
Dependent Re-verification (DRV) is the process of re-verifying the eligibility of your spouse, domestic partner, children, stepchildren, and domestic partner children (family members) enrolled for state health and dental benefits. Government Code section 22843.1 mandates re-verifying the eligibility of your family members. Government Code section 22959 authorizes extending this review to your family members enrolled for dental benefits.
- The eligibility of your family members will be re-verified once every three years. The re-verification period is based on your birth month. Employees born during the following months are required to re-verify family members during 2020: March, June, September, and December.
- For those employees with birthdays in December, you do not need to send in the Dependent Eligibility Verification Affidavit mailed to you by CalPERS. As a sustainable and convenient alternative, you will receive an email from Adobe Sign. From that email, you can complete your required Dependent Eligibility Verification Affidavit and attached the required documents. Please complete and submit your required documents prior to November 30, 2020, in order for your dependent(s) to continue receiving health coverage and avoid cancellation on 1/1/2021.
