I am not a benefits rep, but I have received many calls from our members who are somewhat confused about our dental and vision plan. At the first of the year we got our coverage back. Many had kept their coverage through COBRA and was paying monthly premiums. Now it is up to you if you want to keep them both. But many of our Retirees don't know that they are paying for something they may not need. If you have any questions on the above we have benefits reps that are at the IBEW drop in center on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week. The phone number is (404) 688-9225. Talk it up with Retirees you know that may not have access to the internet or Facebook. Debbie is available at the UAW office Monday-Friday, (770) 457-3128.

Dear Brother and Sister Retirees,
If any of you have any changes in your life, such as a death of a spouse, change of address, remove or add a dependent, or change your healthcare plan, you must contact our healthcare provider (Hewitt) so that they can update their system. Hewitt is the provider for our Veba Trust Fund account. the number is 1-(866)-637-7555. Their hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm. You will also need to contact the GM Benefit Center so your pensions won't get messed up. That number is 1-(800)-489-4646 (Fidelity).
We have mentioned this at the retiree meetings numerous times, but if you are not sure who your beneficiary is please contact Fidelity and request a new beneficiary form. Fill the form out and mail it back. The new form will replace your old one with the correct person that you designate as the person you want to leave your life insurance to. If you have a computer you can also update you beneficiary form online.
This message from Debbie Garcia:
If anyone needs to verify employment, they can contact the Benefit Service Center at 1-(800)-489-4646. We the UAW cannot verify employment. Please call the number and ask for Other Programs. This will get you to employment verification.
