Annual Enrollment

It Will Be Here Before You Know It

Image Description HereAs mentioned in the May 2014 “A Matter of Health” newsletter, Annual Enrollment is just around the corner. Watch for July’s special Annual Enrollment editions of the employee and retiree newsletters to be distributed via email by Wednesday, July 2, 2014.

During early July, the UT System Office of Employee Benefits (OEB) website will be updated with this year's Annual Enrollment information, including video presentations from OEB and the UT Benefits insurance vendors.

Keep These Important Dates in Mind

  • Annual Enrollment period: July 15, 2014 through July 31, 2014;
  • UT Benefits Enrollment Options Letter: Receive via email by July 15, 2014;
  • Deadline for submitting Evidence of Insurability (EOI) forms for Life, Disability, and Long-Term Care insurance: August 15, 2014; and,
  • Effective date for coverage elected and approved during Annual Enrollment: September 1, 2014.

It is especially important for employees and retirees to keep your contact information (particularly email addresses) up to date during the Annual Enrollment season. If you know of any employees or retirees who are not receiving this newsletter electronically, please encourage them to contact the HR or Benefits office at their institution to update their email address.
