The Benefits Choice period will begin on May 1 and now would be a good time for you, as a participant of the State of Illinois Group Insurance Program, to review your insurance benefit information online.
The Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) produces an online Benefit Statement that is updated the first Friday of each month to reflect employee and dependent coverage in effect on the first day of that month.
It is important to review this Statement annually and to confirm that your information and any changes you have requested to your coverage, address or biographical information are correct.
CMS also mails a Verification Form to employees after processing qualifying event or Benefit Choice changes. Employees should contact their campus UPB Benefits office if information on either the Benefit Statement or Verification Form is incorrect.
To view your Benefit Statement, please visit http://go.illinois.edu/benefitstatement.
Creation of an Illinois Public ID is required to view your Benefit Statement. Instructions for creating the ID are on the web page above. You will be asked for an email address when creating your ID which can be any email address you want to use to receive your ID validation.
