Annual Enrollment is Underway
From today until July 31, you will have the opportunity to enroll in or make changes to your benefits for the plan year that begins on September 1, 2016.
If you do not want to make any changes to your benefits, no action on your part is required. Your current plan elections will automatically carry over into the new plan year. The only exception to this rule is UT Flex. If you wish to continue UT Flex, you must log in to My UT Benefits and complete Annual Enrollment. UT Flex participation is not available to retirees.
For more information about Annual Enrollment and the upcoming changes to your benefits, please refer to the Special Annual Enrollment Edition of the A Matter of Health Newsletter published by the UT System Office of Employee Benefits (OEB), and the highlights and resources guides available on the OEB Annual Enrollment Website.
Also, please keep these important dates in mind:
- July 15 - Annual Enrollment begins. Log into My UT Benefits to make changes to your benefits elections for the upcoming plan year.
- July 21 - UT Austin hosts the annual Health and Lifestyle Expo. Come visit with your benefits providers, get a free chair massage, pet a therapy dog, and more.
- July 31 - Annual Enrollment ends. All benefits elections must be finalized in My UT Benefits no later than 11:59 p.m. CDT.
- August 15 - This is your last day to log into My UT Benefits and upload Evidence of Eligibility (EOE) documents for your dependents and/or complete the Evidence of Insurability (EOI) process when adding or increasing voluntary group term life insurance.
For questions or additional assistance, please refer to the Annual Enrollment guides available on the OEB Annual Enrollment Website or contact the Human Resources Service Center. Please note that depending on the volume of inquiries, response times may vary.
