Optional Plans

Slight Rate Increase for Short Term Disability; No Changes Planned for Life, AD&D, Long Term Disability, or Long Term Care Coverage

The UT System Office of Employee Benefits (OEB) is pleased that all of these available optional plans will continue to offer the same complete package of benefits during the upcoming plan year, providing robust protection and financial value for you and your family.

There are no changes to the Short Term Disability (STD) plan benefit plan design. However, as a result of high claims experience in the STD plan (through Dearborn National Life Insurance Company) over the past two plan years, there will be a slight premium increase in the monthly rate for STD coverage.  

There are no changes to the rates or to the benefits plan design for the following optional plans available to employees:

Evidence of insurability (EOI) is required to enroll in these plans during Annual Enrollment (except AD&D), so when you make your election look for detailed information regarding EOI within My UT Benefits. More information is available on the OEB website at www.utsystem.edu/benefits.
