Verify Your Benefit Choice Elections
The new plan year for State benefits (health, dental, vision, life insurance, flexible spending accounts) began on July 1, 2017, and any changes you elected during the Benefit Choice period are now in effect. Since this is the first year that Benefit Choice elections were processed on the MyBenefits Marketplace website, Human Resource Services encourages you to verify your benefit elections and payroll deductions.
If you made a change during the Benefit Choice period, you should have been mailed a confirmation statement verifying the elected change. You can also verify your benefit elections by viewing them online on the MyBenefits Marketplace website (www.MyBenefits.illinois.gov). To review your elections, you will need to log into the system with your State issued ID and your individual password. Your current coverage for FY2018 can be reviewed on the left side of the main page after logging into the system on the “Your Benefits” tile. If you select “View All”, you will see your personal information, your coverage information, and your dependent information.
It is also recommended that you review your pay check to confirm that your payroll deductions for State insurance are consistent with your Benefit Choice elections. Salaried employees will see payroll deduction changes for FY2018 on the pay check they will receive on July 14, 2017. Hourly employees will see payroll deduction changes for FY2018 on the pay check they will receive on July 31, 2017.
If you see anything on the MyBenefits Marketplace system or on your pay check that is inconsistent with your FY2018 benefit elections, please contact:
