This year’s annual benefits enrollment period is July 14 through July 27. Employees can access benefit information and change their plan enrollment by going to the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) website.
Changes made during annual enrollment are effective September 1 for plan year 2015.
During the annual enrollment period, employees cannot change their family status due to qualifying life events through the ERS website. Contact HR benefits staff to make these changes during the enrollment period.
For additional details about benefits enrollment and rates, view the benefits enrollment webpage. For assistance making changes or questions about benefits, contact the HR benefits staff or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The employee contribution rate for the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS) plan will increase from 6.4 percent to 6.7 percent effective September 1. The employer contribution rate will remain 6.8 percent.
The change does not require any action by employees; those who contribute to TRS will see the increase reflected in their September paycheck.
The Dependent Eligibility Audit deadline has been extended to July 10. Employees who were contacted by Aon Hewitt must certify the eligibility of their dependents by providing the required documents. Unverified dependents will lose group benefit program insurance, including health, dental, and dependent term life.
ACC’s EAP program provides employees and their dependents with free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, prevention, and education services.

ACC non-faculty employees on a supervisory career path who want to build their supervisory experience are invited to apply to the college’s new Supervisor’s Certificate program.
The program will provide basic supervisory knowledge and experience to those who aspire to supervisory positions but have limited supervisor experience. Participants must be on a supervisory career path and meet the educational requirements for supervision but lack the required experience. Most ACC supervisor positions require at least a bachelor’s degree and one year of supervisory experience. Upon completion of the program, participants will earn credit for one year supervisory experience toward ACC-posted supervisory positions.
HR Professional Development and Evaluation is hosting information sessions about the program at each campus beginning Monday, June 23 (see below). Applications will be accepted Monday, July 7, through Friday, August 8.
