* Applying for Optional Term Life Insurance, Dependent Life Insurance and/or Short and Long Term Disability requires  proof of good health, also called evidence of insurability (EOI). Acceptance is not guaranteed.  If approved before September 1, coverage begins on September 1.  If approved after September 1, coverage begins the first of the month after ERS receives notification of approval.

If you don’t make any changes, your benefits will remain the same for Plan Year 2015
