Each meeting will be conducted in Forum Hall, K-State Student Union. The meeting will outline changes to the State of Kansas health, dental, pharmaceutical and vision programs for plan year 2004 as well as changes to the KanElect Flexible Spending Account programs for 2004.

Also, a representative from Minnesota Life Insurance Company, the new carrier for our basic term life insurance and the KPERS Optional Group Life Insurance program, will make a presentation about program changes to be effective January 1, 2004.

Please remember that all three of these open enrollments will be conducted on-line, via the internet.

Direct Deposit Prenoting
In an effort to streamline the direct deposit process, a policy decision has been made to discontinue the process of prenoting direct deposits. This change allows employees to receive the benefit of direct deposit immediately rather than receiving a check while waiting for the prenote process to complete. This change in policy will be effective with all direct deposit information entered in HRIS with an effective date on or after September 14, 2003.

Reminder - 2003 Discretionary Day
The last day an employee may use their 2003 Discretionary Day is Saturday, December 20, 2003. Please advise any eligible employees in your department who have not used their 2003 Discretionary Day of this provision.

Questions should be addressed to Benefits Administration, Division of Human Resources at (785) 532-6277, or e-mail: BENADMIN@K-STATE.EDU.
