October 29, 2020
MEC Benefits Committee
Benefits enrollment for 2021 is now open. Flight Attendants can make their benefit elections now through October 30th, online, by visiting Flying Together.
Nothing could be more critical to understanding your benefits than taking the time to understand not only the costs, but all of the aspects of the plan. As we mentioned last week, there is a new “United PPO” which differs from the “Traditional PPO” in both deductible, out of pocket limits as well as other costs. To avoid confusion, be sure to compare any plans and thoroughly review coverage and cost to be sure they meet your needs.
Part of the enrollment process this year, also has you select or decline coverage for other new programs such as:
- Critical Illness Insurance
- Hospital Indemnity Insurance
- Accident Insurance
While these are not the only choices you may have depending on your individual circumstances, you should be aware the enrollment processes this year have a number of additional options for you to consider. We recommend you allow extra time to review these choices to find the best fit for your needs.
Open Enrollment for active employees is open now through October 30. Open enrollment for non-active employees, including those on Voluntary Furlough, will open November 2 through November 13.
