Connecting Your New Hires with Their MERS Benefits
Here's what your new hires can expect when you enroll them in a MERS plan:
Within two weeks of enrolling, new hires will receive:
- A welcome email introducing MERS and giving an overview of the plan(s) your new hire is enrolled in, along with immediate action items. Included in this email will be a link to the MERS New Participant resource page at mersofmich.com/life-events/new-Participant. Here, new hires can find:
- Plan information
- Video explaining plan features
- Information on the benefits of a myMERS account
Important! Please submit an email address for your new hire upon enrollment in order for MERS to generate a welcome email for your new hires. If you do not include an email address, your new hires will receive welcome messages via postal mail.
Employers are not required to input beneficiary information for new hires. Instead, participants will be encouraged to enter this information themselves through their myMERS online account.
