Administrative and Policy Change Log

Here you will see a list of Admin and Policy changes.


Posting Date: November 26, 2018

Action required: No

What: At the end of the first quarter in 2019 MERS will be performing a plan re-enrollment for all Health Care Savings Program participants into the updated default fund.

Key Date(s): The re-enrollment will take place on Friday, March 29, 2019

Impacted audiences: All MERS Health Care Savings Program participants

Key information:

Since there have been many improvements to the HCSP since the plan was created 15 years ago, we want to ensure that all plan participants are aware of the benefits their program provides. At the end of the first quarter in 2019 we will be performing a plan re-enrollment. During this time all participants will have their assets defaulted to an age-appropriate Retirement Strategies fund after close of the market on Friday, March 29, 2019. If participants would prefer to remain in their current investment fund line-up, they must complete and submit a form to MERS or make an election change in their myMERS account by March 22, 2019. (Participants will receive this information and instructions on how to remain in their current line-up if they choose in January.) At this time we will also be sending participants welcome (again) kit that describes their HCSP and highlights the resources available to them.
