If you're eligible for the City of Richmond CalPERS Health Program, you have 60 calendar days from your appointment date to request enrollment. Benefit enrollments will be initiated during a scheduled New Employee Onboarding in the Human Resources Management Department.
Below are other opportunities to enroll at a later date if you decline or cancel enrollment, or experience a qualifying life event.
If you decline or cancel enrollment for yourself or your dependents and do not qualify for special enrollment, you or your dependents will have limited opportunities to enroll in the future. You may enroll during the next CalPERS Open Enrollment or at any time within a 90-day waiting period. The earliest effective date of enrollment will be the first of the month following the 90-day waiting period or the January 1 after Open Enrollment.
