The Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS), which administers health and other insurance benefits for State of Texas employees, is holding its annual summer enrollment period for Plan Year 2016‐17 from now until August 6, 2016.
During this annual enrollment period, employees can make changes to their benefits portfolios without a qualifying life event. This is your opportunity to add or drop health, life, or disability insurance or make other changes to your insurance coverage as needed. During annual summer enrollment you may also enroll in a health care and/or dependent care spending account or cancel an existing one.

If you don’t want to change your benefits portfolio, don’t do anything. Your current benefits will remain the same for the upcoming academic year (9/1/2016 to 8/31/2017).
For your convenience, you may make changes to your benefits portfolio until August 6 in one of three ways:
- Online 24/7 directly with ERS at ers.state.tx.us
- By calling ERS during normal business hours at (866) 399‐6908
- Through Employment Services and Operations (ESO) by scheduling an appointment with Paula Jannett at x‐8463 or firstname.lastname@example.org and completing the required 2016 summer enrollment form.
