  Retiree Premiums


  • If you are an employee or retiree covering your grandchild as a dependent, you should recertify your dependent by submitting new documentation to HRConnect Legacy. Accepted grandchild documentation is a copy of the portion of your most recent income tax return that states you are claiming your grandchild as a dependent. You may redact (cross out) any financial information.
  • If you would like to remain enrolled in a Flexible Spending Account, you must re-enroll every year.
  • It is important to name a beneficiary for life insurance, and the fastest way for your beneficiary to obtain your benefit in the event it is needed. Open Enrollment is a good time to check your beneficiaries and ensure they are up to date.

Review the  System Benefits Administration website to prepare for Open Enrollment. View premiums, plan description booklets, and more. Check your current benefit elections by clicking on the Benefits Worklet from your Workday home page.

Opting out of 65 Plus Plan coverage will mean that you are opting out of any medical coverage through the Texas A&M University System.
