Things to think about as you’re enrolling
- Beneficiaries: When you enroll in myHR, you should be prompted to list your beneficiaries. You may change them at any time with the beneficiary designation form
- Evidence of insurability: Read the Life Insurance SPD to learn when evidence of insurability is required. If you must submit evidence, use the group life evidence of insurability form
All UM System faculty and staff, regardless of hours or benefit eligibility, have the ability to participate in the UM System 403(b) and 457(b) Voluntary Retirement Plans.
