First Things First: New Fiscal Year Benefits Checkpoints

Check your deductions

Your new benefits plan year began September 1, 2020. It is important to log into Workday through Single Sign On (https://sso.tamus.edu/) and verify the accuracy of the benefits you elected for FY21 by clicking on the Benefits worklet, then “Benefit Elections” in the View column. If you find an error in your benefit elections, contact your human resources office before October 15, 2020.

Dependent SSN Reminders

As part of compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the A&M System Benefits Administration Office is required to request Social Security Numbers (SSNs) for covered dependents. This information will remain confidential. If you have dependents covered through your A&M System health plan for whom you have not provided an SSN or if you are unsure as to whether you have previously provided your dependent’s SSN(s), go online to Workday (http:// sso.tamus.edu/) to check and enter an SSN. After logging into Workday, click on the Benefits worklet. On the Benefits screen, select “Dependents” in the Change column. Click on the Dependent record you would like to edit. Visit the Workday Help website for assistance.

FY20 Flexible Spending Account Deadlines

If you have remaining funds in your FY20 healthcare or dependent daycare Flexible Spending Account (FSA), the grace period has been extended due to COVID-19. You may file eligible claims with a date of service of September 1, 2019 through December 31, 2020 to use your remaining FY20 FSA funds. All claims related to your FY20 FSA must be filed by December 31, 2020.

Medicare Part D Updates – Annual Communications

If you are enrolled in the A&M Care 65 Plus plan, you will be receiving an annual communication from Express Scripts regarding Medicare Part D in early October. Express Scripts is required to send these details to you on a yearly basis. You do not need to take action at this time and there will be no changes to your prescription drug plan. The annual enrollment period for our group differs from that of the general Medicare population. Your Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Out-of-Pocket Maximum will restart on January 1, 2021. Please contact your Benefits Office if you have any questions.
