However, the retiree dental plans listed below all offer discounts for CTU members. If you are a retiree member provide the identification number listed on your CTU membership card to receive the discount. The three dental companies that offer a CTU discount are:

  1. Delta Dental - 800-323-1743
  2. Guardian - 708-361-0002
  3. RTA/MetLife - 312-750-1522

Please call any of the three companies and they will help you find a policy that fits your needs.
