Faculty and Staff Benefits and Insurance Information

Thank you for attending the faculty and staff meeting. Unfortunately the audio on our webcast for people attending remotely was garbled due to a network connectivity/hardware conflict. We are very sorry for the difficulty. We are including all of the information given out during the meeting in this message.

Please read through the materials below carefully and contact Kelley Maddox at kmaddox@brenau.edu with any questions.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Each ¾-time and full-time employee will be required to login to our online enrollment system, Selerix, to either enroll-in or opt-out of each offered benefit. It is also important to check your personal information as it appears in the system, update beneficiaries, and add/delete dependents, if applicable. If you do not log into to the system, your level of coverage will remain the same and you will be unable to make changes until the next open enrollment period (Nov. 2015). The process is quick and easy and should take no more than 10 minutes. Go to https://www.benselect.com/Enroll/login to access the enrollment system and select your benefits. See instructions attached for how to login to Selerix.

DEADLINE:
All benefit elections must be made through Selerix prior to Nov. 30.

BENEFITS EFFECTIVE DATE:
Jan. 1, 2015

PREMIUM EFFECTIVE DATES:
Premium increases will be effective on in the first payroll period (your first paycheck) of 2015 for all insurance. If you choose to donate to the United Way via payroll deduction that will all begin at this time.

FLEXIBLE SPENDING:
If you are already enrolled in the flexible spending plan with Admin America; keep your cards as they will be used for the upcoming plan year as well.

ID CARDS:
If you choose to enroll in the medical or vision plan, you should receive an insurance card at your home address before Dec. 31. Aetna issues family cards so if you have more than one person enrolled you will receive 2 cards with the employee’s name on it as well as each covered member. Dental members, however, will not be receiving a card . Rather, when you make an appointment, you would give your dentist’s office your SSN. You will receive a letter in the mail at your home address allowing you to request a paper ID card.

DEDUCTIBLE CARRYOVER:
If you met your medical deductible in the last 3 months of the 2014 plan year (October, November or December), Aetna will honor that the deductible has been met for the new plan year in 2015.
