The San Diego Public Employee Benefit Association (SDPEBA) is a partnership between the following associations:

  • MEA- Municipal Employees Association
  • AFSCME 127- American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (aka Local 127)
  • CREA- City of San Diego Retired Employees Association
  • RFPA- Retired Fire and Police Association
  • SDPOA- San Diego Police Officers Association

Although SDPEBA is the same great team that has administered MEA’s benefits for the past 20 years, we have added more staff to continue providing the best in class service and support you deserve!  Our goal is to reduce costs, improve benefits, and enhance support, while stabilizing premiums- and we have worked hard to deliver for FY22. 

SDPEBA offers MEA employees the Sharp Health Plans, MetLife Dental plans, and VSP plan through the City’s Benefits portal in SAP.  In addition, the following plans are available through the SDPEBA website for FY22 as well:

* Only available during Open Enrollment.

One of the added conveniences of enrolling into these plans through SDPEBA is that the premiums are deducted directly from your pay on a post-tax basis.  No need to worry about due dates, stamps or envelopes. 

If you are a non-MEA employee wanting to enroll for dental or vision coverage through SDPEBA, please be sure to cancel or not select a dental or vision plan through the City’s Benefits portal in SAP.

To learn more or to enroll into these plans, you can either click on the plan listed above, or click on the “Active Benefits” dropdown at the top of this page.

If you plan to enroll into one of the Sharp Health Plans – (Classic, Select, Saver) this open enrollment, you must do so through the City’s Benefits portal in SAP.
