Annual Benefits Enrollment Fair, July 18, 2016


How to Enroll

Annual Benefits Enrollment for UT Dallas benefits-eligible employees opens Friday, July 15, 2016, and will continue through Sunday, July 31, 2016. During this period, you may enroll in or change your Plan Year 2016-2017 insurance benefit elections, sign up for or re-enroll in UT FLEX, and add or remove dependents from your coverage plan. Annual Benefits Enrollment period is a great opportunity to review your existing benefits, learn what is new and make changes that meet your needs.

By July 15, employees will begin receiving the Annual Enrollment Coverage Option Letter from the UT System. This letter explains insurance options in detail and contains your login PIN [Personal Identification Number] and instructions on enrolling online through My UT Benefits. If you haven’t received your letter by Monday, July 25, please contact

If you choose not to elect the UT Select Medical Plan due to coverage under another group health insurance program (i.e. spouse/parents coverage), you may be eligible to receive the medical premium sharing of $299.07 (FT [Full Time] 30+hours) or $149.54 (PT [Part Time] 20-29 hours) that may allow you to cover the cost of dental, vision and AD&D coverage. Contact a Benefits Administrator if you are not enrolling in the UT Select Medical Plan.

Important Reminders

Dual Benefits Enrollment for Life Event Changes, New Hires, and Newly Eligible Employees

Dual benefits enrollment may be required for employees who experienced a life event change, are new hires or became newly eligible for benefits between July 1, 2016 and August 31, 2016. If you fall into one of these categories, please carefully read the information below and contact a Benefits Administrator if you need assistance in completing your enrollment.

We encourage employees hired in August to submit their initial enrollment and annual enrollment online no later than August 12, 2016, to avoid delays in processing due to the Fiscal Year schedule and budget and payroll processing periods between mid-August and September.

Please review further instructions provided while you are enrolling online and contact one of the Benefits Administrators listed below if you need assistance.
