CIA Retirement and the Daniels Bill 25X1A visited OTR Personnel on 6 December to discuss 25X1A retirement plans. inquiry was directed toward the Daniels Bill and its possible effects on the CIA Retirement System; specifically, he wanted to know if the bonus provided for in the Daniels Bill would be applied to the CIA Retirement System. He was advised that it was reasonably well accepted within the Agency retirement staffs and that the necessary legislation would be forthcoming which would eventually Incorporate the Daniels Bill bonus into the CIA System. felt that there was an 25X1A element of risk in retiring early with the hope that the provision would be available later, and therefore, decided that he would not consider retiring this year but would wait for "two or three more years". 25X1A Approved For Release 2000/08/30 : A-WMONA00030009 r a~ n; ant "1 '' deciassi?iwwilo0 Ap,provL%d For Re se 2000/08/30 : CIA-RDP78-06 6A000300090005-5 S-E-C-R-E-T TO ALL DENTA POLICYHOLDERS In July 1963, employees of the Agency expressed sufficient interest in a plan of dental insurance to warrant negotiation with an underwriter to provide such coverage. In November 1963, announced the DENTA Plan, 25X1A effective 2 December 1963. From the very beginning it was recognized that the DENTA Plan was unique and experimental, and that it was quite likely that during the initial period of coverage claims might be excessive. It was hoped, however, that the program would stabilize, actuarily, and that this type of coverage could be continued as a part of the Agency's overall insurance program. As anticipated, claims were high but the hoped-for stabilization did not occur. After the first contract year ending 1 December 1964, the ratio of claims to premiums exceeded acceptable limits. Nonetheless, the underwriter agreed to renew the DENTA Plan for an,additional contract year. In addition, an open period was announced in April 1965 in the hope that a sizeable number of employees might subscribe to this plan and that the increased enrollment might result in a favorable ratio of claims to premiums. At the same time, it was recognized that the adverse claims experience might continue; for this 25X1A the announcement of the open period in included a notation reason, that the premium rates stated were "Guaranteed only through December 1965". The open period was quite successful and many employees enrolled in the plan. Still, and despite the significant increase in subscribers, claims continued to exceed premiums by 30 - 35%. Based on the continuing adverse claims experience and studies which indicated that no improvement is likely, the underwriter has notified us that it could no longer continue the "experiment". Normally, the effective date of cancellation would be 1 December 1965, but the underwriter has agreed to extend this date to 1 January 1966. This notice, therefore, is to inform you that your DENTA coverage will be terminated on 1 January 1966. Prepaid premiums for the period beyond 1 January 1966 will be refunded soon thereafter. We wish also to call to your attention that the termination provisions of the DENTA Plan allow reimbursement of certain expenses beyond the date of cancellation, as described below: K 7, Approved For Release 2000/08/30 ~{~AACK15F 8-r06096A000300 OD5-5~ Approved For Releas2000/08/30 : CIA-RDP78-06096*D00300090005-5 S-E-C-R-E-T a.
