Restoration of Benefit Premium Payroll Deductions - Returning from Special COLAs
November 4, 2020
As those of us who have taken a series of Special COLAs over the past several months are aware, the process of returning deductions for benefits payments to payroll deduction has been difficult, to say the least. After a series of conversations and with the cooperation of United’s Benefits managers, we are pleased to report that all Flight Attendants who are currently on direct bill and pay, with the exception of those in the IVFMP, will be returned to payroll deductions as of December 1, 2020. This will be an automatic process and not action on your part will be required.
If you are in this situation, you will be receiving a targeted e-mail communication from the Benefits Department advising you of this upcoming change. You must ensure that your benefits payments with the UABC are current and paid through the end of November. To check your benefits balance, log into Your Benefits Resource (YBR) and, using the ‘Pay Now’ tile, make you payment no later than November 30, 2020.
