    SUSD’s DEPENDENT VERIFICATION REVIEW (DVR) - Happening Now through March 15, 2024

    SUSD is working with American Fidelity Assurance Company to conduct a Dependent Verification Review (DVR) to verify the eligibility of dependents covered in the District’s health benefit plans. During the review period, every benefits eligible SUSD employee will need to meet with an American Fidelity Benefits Counselor, to show the required verification documents for enrolled dependents, in order to verify their eligibility to remain covered on their benefit plans. 

    More information and the required dependent verification documents can be found in the SUSD DVR Letter listed below.

    SUSD DVR Letter - Required Verification Documents

    Employees will need to schedule their in-person or virtual appointment with an American Fidelity Benefit Counselor.  In-person appointments will be conducted on specific days at each District site during the review period. Virtual appointments will require access to internet and camera (to show your verification documents).

    *Special accommodations are available upon request, by contacting American Fidelity directly at 1-800-365-8306 ext. 1

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Failure to meet with an American Fidelity Benefit Counselor and complete your review will affect your dependent’s benefit coverage.

    If you do not complete the DVR process, your dependent’s benefit coverage will be terminated from SUSD’s benefit plans effective May 1, 2024.

    If you need assistance in scheduling, confirming or rescheduling your appointment, please contact American Fidelity at 1-800-365-8306 ext. 1
