Annual Enrollment Ended July 31, 2013
Insurance elections may no longer be made for your 2013-2014 coverage unless you experience a qualified change of status during the year. You have 31 days from the date of the change of status event to notify the Human Resource Service Center (HRSC) and make insurance changes.
- August 15: Evidence of Eligibility (EOE) must be uploaded in My UT Benefits if you added new dependents to your insurance.
- August 15: Evidence of Insurability (EOI) must be completed in My UT Benefits if you made life and disability plan elections.
- August 15: Long Term Care applications must be submitted directly to the insurance company, CNA, and postmarked by this date.
After July 31, it is only possible to make changes to Annual Enrollment elections due to a clerical error. Per UT System Office of Employee Benefits policy, changes are only permitted “upon proof of ‘clear and convincing’ evidence that an election was the result of a clerical error. A misunderstanding of the benefits is not a clerical error.”
Employees must adhere to a required time limit to report the clerical error. Per policy, “an employee’s request for a change in coverage will only be considered upon the employee’s submission of ‘clear and convincing evidence’ of the mistake within 31 days of the receipt of the first payroll check that contains the error in coverage.” The first payroll check that contains Annual Enrollment elections is October 1 and the deadline to report clerical errors is October 31.
