Open Enrollment ends July 31

The human resources office reminds employees that they still have time to make changes to their benefits plans. Open Enrollment ends at midnight July 31.

Changes can be made via the U. T. Touch System. To access the system, call 1-800-UT-TOUCH or go to the human resources Web page at www.uthscsa.edu/hr. Employees can hear or view their current benefits and make changes directly from their phones or personal computers 24 hours a day, seven days a week until midnight July 31. Employees should have their personal identification numbers (PINs) ready. PINs and current benefits selections were mailed to employees' homes earlier this month.

For those who do not have access to computers, the human resources office will make available four PCs in the office lobby, room 114 of the Administration Building, during regular business hours in July. Human resources staff will be available to guide users through the U. T. Touch Online System.
