How can I verify my Benefit Choice elections?
You may review your online Benefit Statement, which shows your benefits coverage that will be in place as of July 1, 2011. This online tool allows University employees to view a statement of their current and past benefit elections, including both mandatory and voluntary University of Illinois and State of Illinois benefit plans. You will see the plans that you selected including health, dental, flexible spending accounts and other voluntary benefit programs, if you participate in them. Please note, however, that SURS information is not currently included in this statement.
