Summer Enrollment 2019

Summer Enrollment 2019

July 3, 2019
Summer Enrollment is underway, and ERS is currently accepting benefits changes for state agency and institution employees in phases 1 and 2.  Find out your agency’s or institution’s enrollment phase.

Any changes you make to your or your dependents’ coverage will go into effect September 1, 2019. If you don't want to make changes to your benefits, you do not need to do anything; your coverage will continue.
Please see the articles “Contact Delta Dental with questions about your Plan Year 2020 dental benefits” and “State of Texas Dental Discount Plan ending” for important information about changes in dental insurance and the dental discount plans.

Remember to read your Summer Enrollment packet. (ERS mails them to you about a week before your enrollment phase). The packet includes an enrollment guide and your Personal Benefits Enrollment Statement, as well as information about significant changes in the plan year that starts on September 1.

You can also see the electronic copy of the Summer Enrollment Guide for active employees and find more information on the Summer Enrollment page of the ERS website.
