AAPS is excited to provide an enhanced benefits enrollment process to all employees through our new online enrollment system!
We want to make sure the experience is smooth and easy for all so here are a few key items to remember before you login to complete your benefits enrollment by 5/31/2018:
- Everyone must physically enroll to have benefits effective 7/1/2018.
- Make sure you have all dependent social security numbers at hand when you get ready to complete your online benefits enrollment. If you have any dependents enrolled onto AAPS benefits, you will have to enter their social security numbers in the system in order to proceed with enrolling them onto benefits. Social security numbers are required for dependents by the insurance carriers.
The Kapnick Service Center hours will be expanded for the last three days of open enrollment. Tuesday May 29th thru Thursday May 31st the service center hours will be from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. On Wednesday May 30th and Thursday May 31st,the Kapnick office, located at 1201 Briarwood Circle next to the Briarwood Mall, will be available to all AAPS employees who would like in –person, hands on assistance with the enrollment process. Please stop by the Kapnick office between the hours of 6:30 AM and 7:00 PM. No appointment is necessary!
Beginning in 2019, we will also change the insurance coverage dates. Currently our insurance is in effect from July 1 to June 30. As a result of collaborative negotiations, our insurance coverage will run from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 each year.
That means that for this year only, we will have a "short plan year" requiring an enrollment period for insurance coverage July 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.
Open Enrollment is during the month of May, with elections effective July 1st of every year.
All changes in coverage (marriage, birth, death, divorce, etc) must be made within 30 days of the event.
