The Fiscal Year 2015 Benefit Choice Period is May 1 – June 2, 2014, for all SURS members. This is the only time of the year, other than when you experience a “qualifying change in status,” that you may change your coverage.
If you would like to make changes to your benefit plan, you must complete the Benefit Choice Form (see below) and return it to SURS by June 2, 2014. Elections will be effective July 1, 2014. If you do not want to make changes to your insurance benefits, you do NOT need to compete the form.
There are benefit cost changes for Fiscal Year 2015. You should carefully review your particular Benefit Choice Options Book (see below) in order to fully understand the cost changes and to make an informed decision regarding your coverage election.
Each Benefit Choice Option Book includes a list of changes that you may make during the election period, health plan descriptions, a health plan coverage map by county, and monthly contribution costs.
If you need further information about your Benefit Choice options you may view the options book at www.benefitschoice.il.gov.
Mail your Benefits Choice Form to SURS, P.O. Box 2710, Champaign, IL 61825 or fax it to 217-378-9800.
