Benefits Enrollment Information

Important Reminders

You must declare whether you and or any of your covered dependents use tobacco by signing into your account on the My UT Benefits website.

If you are a current UT FLEX participant and would like to continue to participate, you must re-enroll to have UT Flex for the new fiscal year. If you use the debit card, please be sure to re-elect the debit card option even if you already have a debit card.
