Annual Enrollment: Follow-Up
Annual Enrollment Has Ended – Don’t Forget These Key Follow-Up Items!
Annual Enrollment (AE) ended at midnight Central on July 31, 2013. During AE you had the opportunity to change your UT Benefits elections and add or remove dependents from coverage. If you made an Annual Enrollment election, you should have received a confirmation statement the next day via email. Please review your confirmation statement carefully to be sure your elections for the new plan year are correct. Read more about what to keep in mind now that AE has ended.
