My spouse and I are both retirees of Sandia. What happens if I die? Does my spouse retain dental coverage?
Your spouse will be able to add dental under him/herself in the case of death.
If you both are not retirees of Sandia and the retiree is deceased, the surviving spouse cannot retain the Sandia dental coverage. This would be a COBRA event, and your surviving spouse will receive information regarding extending the dental coverage through COBRA.
