Through Nov. 3: Insurance annual open enrollment

The insurance annual open enrollment is October 16 through November 3.  Annual enrollment gives employees the opportunity to enroll in health, life (State Life or UND Life), dental (Delta Dental or Total Dental), vision and long term care insurance coverage for which they are not currently participating, add/remove dependents and increase/decrease coverage levels.

If you’re not making any changes to your insurance benefits you don’t have to do anything.

Coverage is effective on January 1, 2018 (except pending insurability approvals).

  • State Life Insurance:
    • Employee Supplemental Coverage: Employees may increase their supplemental coverage by $25,000, up to a maximum guarantee issue of $200,000 without Evidence of Insurability (EOI).

Employees wishing to increase their supplemental coverage by more than $25,000 or above the guarantee issue of $200,000 (up to the maximum coverage limit of $400,000) must complete and submit an EOI.

  • Dependent Supplemental Coverage: Employees currently enrolled in $2,000 or $5,000 dependent supplemental coverage may apply for an increase to the new tiers of either $7,000 or $10,000 during Annual Enrollment without EOI. However, requests for new coverage or future requests to increase coverage will require EOI.
  • Spouse Supplemental Coverage: The maximum coverage level is increasing from $100,000 to $200,000.  Spouse supplemental coverage can’t exceed 50% of the employee coverage. All requests to increase coverage during Annual Enrollment will require EOI.

Return the completed EOI to the Payroll Office for processing.
