[06/08/21]   Why is Summer Enrollment such a big deal?

Well, Summer Enrollment happens only once a year! 🥳 It's an important time because employees have the opportunity to make changes to their benefits that usually can only be made when a "life event" occurs.

Qualifying Life Events (QLE) are births, deaths, loss of coverage, divorce, etc.

📅During Summer Enrollment (June 28-July 10), you can also make changes to your "Flex Spending" accounts to increase/decrease your pledge, or add/remove the benefit.

📌 Changes made during Summer Enrollment are effective September 1.

[06/07/21]   What is ERS Summer Enrollment and what is included?

We're glad you asked!

ERS, or the Employee Retirement System of Texas, is the group benefits program that administers our health benefits. Starting June 28 you have the opportunity to make changes to your health coverage, optional insurance, and TexFlex flexible spending accounts. You can also add/remove dependents to your plan.

So what is NOT included during the upcoming enrollment period (June 28-July 10)? LSC optional benefits like MetLaw, and the Sick Leave Pool have their own enrollment periods. You will hear more about those after the ERS Summer Enrollment. 😉

Avoid this common Summer Enrollment mistake!

Did you know, Lone Star College covers the employee premiums for life insurance up to 2x your salary and Long-Term Disability (LTD)?

Do not cancel this free benefit. If you waive this free benefit, you will not be able to re-enroll until next Summer Enrollment. Even then, you will have to get approved through Evidence of Insurability (EOI).

Summer Enrollment this year is from June 28-July 10. Let us know what questions you have and be ready in advance!
