Start the year right by making sure your benefits are in order
It only takes a few minutes to make sure your benefits are in order and that you’re ready to take advantage of some of the great benefits and tools UC offers. Here’s our list of New Year’s benefits tasks:
- Check your paystub to make sure your Open Enrollment changes are reflected correctly. If they aren’t, contact your local benefits office immediately at 510-987-0900.
- Download your W-2. You can download your electronic W-2 by signing in to your account on At Your Service. If you have not yet elected online delivery only of your W-2, you’ll also receive a paper form in the mail by Jan. 31. Please consider helping UC save printing and mailing costs by electing online delivery only of your W-2 for the future, which you also can do on the At Your Service website.
- Review your new medical plan ID card. If you are enrolled in Health Net, Health Net Blue & Gold or Anthem Blue Cross PLUS, please verify that both the primary care provider and the medical group listed on your card are correct. If there are any errors, call the customer service number on your ID card to make corrections.
- Create a CONEXIS FSA account. If you enrolled in the DepCare or Health FSA for the first time, visit the CONEXIS website to create an account so that you can file claims electronically, review your account and receive updates regarding your claims.
- Review your 2011 Flexible Spending Accounts. If you were enrolled in a flexible spending account (DepCare FSA or Health FSA) during 2011, review your account to see whether you have any remaining funds and/or whether you need to submit documentation for any Health FSA spending card transactions. You can check your account by either calling CONEXIS at 1-800-482-4120 or logging into your CONEXIS account.
- Take a health assessment. Kaiser members age 18 and older can take a free health assessment through Kaiser’s HealthWorks website. Most other medical plan enrollees can take a health assessment and earn an incentive award through the StayWell program. Starting Jan. 16, check out the StayWell website.
