The open enrollment period for the long-term disability (LTD) insurance plan offered through the University of Tennessee begins Monday, March 28. Recent changes have resulted not only in improved benefits but also lower in premiums for current participants and for eligible employees who wish to join the plan during the enrollment period, which ends May 2. If you are currently enrolled in the LTD insurance plan and are not changing your level of coverage, you do not need to complete any additional forms. During open enrollment, those not currently covered and those who would like to change their level of coverage may do so.
Regular full- and part-time employees who are regularly scheduled to work at least 75 percent time are eligible to enroll and should have received detailed information about the changes in the university’s LTD insurance plan from the Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential). Information meetings with Prudential, UT Human Resources, and plan representatives are scheduled statewide between Monday, March 28, and Tuesday, April 5.
Knoxville-area employees may take advantage of information sessions in the Carolyn P. Brown Memorial University Center Auditorium on Monday and Tuesday, April 4 and 5. Monday’s session will be from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Tuesday’s session will be from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
