This toolkit contains information and resources to assist HR Professionals in the triennial Dependent Re-Verification (DRV) process.
Beginning in 2018, the eligibility of dependents enrolled in state-sponsored health and dental benefits will be re-verified once every three years. The re-verification period is based on the employee's birth month. The following chart illustrates the schedule:
Employee Birth Month
Employees enrolling family members within six months of their birth month will re-verify their eligibility at the next cycle. Example: An employee with the August birth month enrolls a spouse in May 2019. The eligibility of this spouse will be re-verified in 2022.
