Catherine Melvin of the Texas Department of Public Safety has been elected to serve on the six-member Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) Board of Trustees.
As in past years, Summer Enrollment has been divided into two-week phases to better serve our members.
As I write this column, there are still a few weeks left in the 85th Texas Legislature. It’s too soon to say with 100% certainty what, if any, changes there might be to the health and retirement benefits ERS manages. However, it looks like it will be a good session for state retirees and employees, with no major changes to benefits.
In late August 2017, the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) will launch its redesigned website and new domain name.
Beginning September 1, 2017, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) will replace UnitedHealthcare as the plan administrator for HealthSelectSM of Texas, Consumer Directed HealthSelectSM and HealthSelect Secondary.
Join ERS in August or September for a 2017 Staying Connected retiree fair in the Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth or Houston area.
Be sure to notify ERS to update your address and other contact information.
