Spouse/Domestic Partner Re-verification Audit and GAP Audit Concluded: Last Chance Opportunity
September 10, 2021
As we previously reported, United’s Benefits Service Center has been conducting a two-tiered process to verify dependents. These processes, the Spouse/Domestic Partner Re-verification Audit and the GAP Audit, both had a targeted deadline date for action of August 26, 2021. We recognize this date has passed and we’ve heard from some of you that you may have inadvertently missed the stated deadline.
We are encouraged that United management has been working with those individuals who may have missed the deadline and is extending a very limited opportunity to provide the required documentation. While not widely broadcast, United is reaching out to each of the employees who have failed to respond to the requirements of the audit via targeted communication sent to your company (or preferred) e-mail address as well as via U.S. Mail to your address of record with the company.
Over the course of the next couple of days, we strongly encourage you to review your corporate e-mail and to carefully review your incoming U.S. mail to avoid missing or misunderstanding the notice as some form of “junk mail.”
You must act expeditiously and no later than the close of business on Monday, September 13, 2021. Failure to respond to this request for information will result in the cancellation of benefits, which will occur at the end of September. Once benefits are cancelled, your only alternative to restore benefits will be through the appeal process which can be lengthy.
If you’re not sure if you’ve been advised of the need to participate, go to Flying Together >> My Work >> YBR (Your Benefits Resources) to verify if there is a message advising you that action is required for continued coverage under United’s Benefits Plans.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council Office.
