Please watch for an email containing information about your benefit package. You must enroll by your deadline or you will be defaulted into certain elections. Contact the ISC with any questions.
Your benefits are managed both by the UW and by Washington state agencies. The UW administers all the health plans, and some retirement plans, e.g., UW Retirement Plan (UWRP) and the UW Voluntary Investment Program (VIP).
You can waive your Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) medical coverage if you’re enrolled in other comprehensive group medical coverage.
If you waive coverage for yourself, you cannot enroll your spouse, children, or other dependents in PEBB medical coverage.
You can’t waive dental coverage, which you keep even if you waive medical coverage.
