State of Delaware Pensioners 2010 - Benefits Information

2010 Open Enrollment is closed. Download the PDF document booklet that details the comprehensive package which covers the health, dental and prescription needs of all benefit eligible State of Delaware employees and pensioners as well as their dependents. Despite continued financial pressures, employee/pensioner premiums for medical plans have not increased this year. A few coverage changes are being implemented in an effort to control costs.

Please take the time to review all of the benefit options and choose the plans that fit your needs as open enrollment is the one time each year to enroll, make changes or terminate coverage in these plans. More information can be found at the Statewide Benefits website - www.ben.omb.delaware.gov

Active employee annual statements for calendar year 2009 will be mailed on May 24, 2010.
Income Tax Withholding Information:

Every January the Pension Office updates the Federal and State tax withholding tables and those changes are reflected in your January pension check. For January of 2010, you may have noticed a larger difference than in prior years. The reason for this is twofold; first, there were the normal state and federal income tax table changes and secondly, there was an adjustment of the federal income tax tables for changes that were made in 2009 to implement The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (the federal stimulus bill).

If you recall, in April 2009, new tax withholding tables were put into place as a result of the federal stimulus bill. These changes increased your monthly net pay for the remainder of 2009. The 2010 tax tables do not reflect the lower withholding that was part of the stimulus bill thus, there is an increase in your tax withholding for 2010.

You can change your tax withholdings by filing a Tax Withholding Election (TWE) form which is available on our website at
our retiree form page

YOUR TAX FORM 1099R WILL BE MAILED NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31, 2010

Tax Withholding Election Form:
