ERS Summer Enrollment for TDCJ employees begins June 25

This year's Employees Retirement System’s online Summer Enrollment runs from June 25 to July 7. Beginning June 25, TDCJ employees will be able to sign into their ERS online account or contact their HR representative to change their benefit elections. After July 7, employees have until July 27 to make enrollment changes through their Human Resources representative or by calling the Employees Retirement System at 1-877-275-4377. After making your elections, you will receive an email or letter verifying your Plan Year 2019 coverage.

With few exceptions, Summer Enrollment is the only time of the year when you can make changes to your benefits without a qualifying life event like the birth of a child, marriage or divorce. If you don't want to change any of your benefits, take no action and your current coverage will continue. Summer Enrollment changes that do not require evidence of insurability approval will go into effect September 1.

Before enrollment begins, you’ll receive your Personal Benefits Enrollment Statement indicating your current benefits, along with information about Plan Year 2019 benefits. As Summer Enrollment approaches, the ERS will provide updated information through their website.
