Review and update personal information as needed:

Your current mailing address and phone number are relevant information to ensure you receive important information, such as:

  • your insurance card(s)
  • statements
  • benefits updates
  • refunds, when applicable.

It is your responsibility to ensure that M-DCPS has your most current personal information. Please click the Learn More link below for a step-by-step instructions on how to update your personal information.

Your District email:

We will be sending time sensitive information via email to all employees, if you haven’t accessed your district email within the past 30 days make sure your account is still accessible. If you are unable to access your email account, please click on the Learn More link below for instructions on how to reset your password.

Board paid life insurance:

Board paid life insurance is one of the most valuable benefits provided to you by Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). This benefit enables you to plan for the future and provide security for your family.

You can increase your Board paid life insurance amount by purchasing additional coverage and/or you can apply for dependent life insurance. For further information on how to enroll in these additional benefits please call our on-site MetLife representative at 305-995-7029. It is critical to keep your beneficiary information updated at all times to ensure the most up-to-date information is available at the time that is needed.

Please click on the Learn More link below for step-by-step instructions on how to update your beneficiary designation.

Dependent Verification:

If you are covering a dependent for the 2020 plan year, please be prepared to submit dependent verification documentation before the start of the 2020 plan year. Otherwise, coverage will be terminated for any dependent whose eligibility has not been verified. Claims incurred will not be paid and any premiums deducted will not be refunded. Please click on the Learn More link below for dependent eligibility requirements.

Decline Coverage:

If you are currently opting out of the School Board’s healthcare coverage and wish to continue this election for the 2020 plan year, you MUST decline board-paid healthcare coverage during the mandatory open enrollment period. After your enrollment, you will be asked to submit your proof of other group coverage.  If you do not decline the School Board’s healthcare coverage and/or submit proof of other group healthcare coverage, you will automatically be assigned to the Board’s default healthcare plan (employee-only coverage).
