As part of our efforts to ensure the long term viability of benefits for our members, ERS is working with Aon Hewitt to conduct a dependent eligibility verification for the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program (GBP). Dependent verification lowers instances of fraud by ensuring that only eligible dependents receive health coverage. Participants will not be required to re-certify dependents that were identified as their eligible dependent in a previous audit.
If you have, you should receive a letter from Aon Hewitt and you will need to take action to verify your dependent's eligibility for coverage.
You will need to:
It is your responsibility to comply with the verification process by providing the
appropriate proof of eligibility to Aon Hewitt by the established due
date. You should respond quickly and provide the requested documents by
the due date. If you do not respond, or your dependent is found
ineligible, ERS will cancel all of your dependent's coverage (health,
dental, and/or dependent life.)
