Open Enrollment is here. Last week, the City began informational sessions which will run throughout the month of November. On Monday, November 13, BenTek will go “live” for Employees and Retirees to make their on-line open enrollment changes. Open enrollment ends on December 1, 2017 at 11:59 PM.
Retirees are welcome to come to any of the informational sessions or to the BenTek labs. A poster listing the locations and times is attached.
Last week all retirees were mailed an open enrollment packet. This includes rates for 2018.
Please note: It is not mandatory for retirees to log on to BenTek and make their benefit elections for 2018. If nothing has changed and the retiree does not want to make any changes to their benefits, then all of their previous elections will roll over. Additionally, if the retiree does not have electronic access or would rather make changes manually through paper, they will be allowed to do so. Enrollment forms were included in your packets and must be received in the Human Resources Office by Monday, December 4, 2017 at 6:00 PM.
If a retiree is adding a dependent they must provide proper documentation to Human Resources. Enrollment cannot be processed without documentation proving legal relationship/dependency. Proper documentation includes birth certificates, marriage/divorce certificates, court orders, social security cards, and dates of birth. Proper documentation must be received in Human Resources by Monday, December 4, 2017 at 6:00 PM in order for dependents to be added. Properly documented dependents will be added effective January 1, 2018.
