Health and/or Dental Enrollment

You must newly elect retiree health/dental coverage online with BENEFITFOCUS within 30 days following your retirement date if you wish to continue coverage on the COVB/VBCPS plan(s). If you do not elect coverage during this time, you will be ineligible to do so at a later date. Click on “Access Benefits Enrollment” below to enroll in retiree health/dental coverage.



  • Authorization to Disclose Protected Health Information - This form allows you to authorize The Consolidated Benefits Office to disclose your personal health information to those individuals (such as your spouse or relatives) or entities you specify.
  • Disabled Adult Dependent Ce​rtification Form - This form is used to determine if your dependent child meets the eligibility requirements for continued coverage after reaching the age limit (26 years). To determine eligibility for coverage, this form must be submitted upon initial enrollment of a disabled dependent and annually thereafter, by August 31st of each benefit plan year, for coverage beginning January 1st of the upcoming benefit plan year.

Conversion Packet

The Consolidated Benefits Office does not manage legal plan, identity theft protection, long term care, or optional life coverage for retirees. To continue coverage in these benefit plans after retirement, you must complete the conversion forms below and submit them directly to plan vendors.

 Open Enrollment

​​ ​Open Enrollment is offered annually to give you the opportunity to enroll in, change or cancel your health and/or dental coverage. The only other opportunity you have to make changes to previously mentioned coverage is when you are experiencing a qualifying event. All other benefit plans may be elected, changed or canceled throughout the plan year.

Elections made during Open Enrollment become effective January 1st of the new plan year.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
