About Pre-65 Open Enrollment
Open Enrollment is the time when Pre-65 retirees can make changes to their Medical and Dental plans for themselves and their enrolled pre-65 dependents. It begins Wednesday, May 13 and ends Friday, May 29, 2020 with plan changes effective July 1, 2019. If you do not make changes at this time, you can make changes next year during Pre-65 Open Enrollment in April and May 2021, or if you experience a qualifying change in status event.
Action is not required on your part to continue your current coverage. However, we recommend you contact the Bursar’s Office at 505.277.5363 to ensure your Automatic Bill Payment is set up correctly for premium increases that will become effective July 1, 2020.
Packets containing an Open Enrollment Guide and an Open Enrollment Form with Instructions were mailed to all Pre-65 eligible retirees prior to the start of Open Enrollment. If you do not receive your packet, need assistance making changes to your benefits, need to update your address on file, or if you have questions, email HRBenefits@unm.edu.
The following changes are effective for the upcoming Fiscal Year, July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 (FY21).
