Time is running out on your chance to make benefits changes for the upcoming year. UHD employees wanting to adjust their benefits portfolio without a qualifying life event have until Saturday, July 22 to modify their elections.
For your convenience, changes can be made in one of three ways:
- Online 24/7 at http://www.ers.state.tx.us/
- By calling ERS during normal business hours at (866) 399-6908
- Through Employment Services and Operations (ESO) by scheduling an appointment with Paula Jannett at x-8463 or firstname.lastname@example.org and completing the required 2017 Annual Enrollment Form
If you don’t want to change your benefits, don’t do anything. Your current benefits will remain the same for the upcoming academic year (9/1/2017 to 8/31/2018).
For employees making changes, ERS will email or mail a confirmation statement containing a list of all enrollment changes to the address ERS has on file for the employee. Email confirmation statements are sent on the same day the changes are entered in ERS OnLine.
Employees should review their Summer Enrollment confirmation statement carefully and confirm that the statement reflects correct benefit changes. If you review your confirmation and find a mistake, contact ESO Benefits Team.
