Changing benefit options each year
You can only change your benefit option once a year. The member guide containing the benefit information and an option selection form will be sent to you in the last quarter of each year, so that you can make an informed decision in time for the following year. If you change your option, benefits on the new option will be available on 1 January of the following year.
You do not need to complete an option selection form if you choose to remain on the same option, but the option selection form is a handy way of making sure that the Scheme has your most recent contact details. Please complete the form if your details have changed.
It is important that you send your request to change your option by the deadline provided, which is in December each year. Option changes will not be approved after the deadline.
Easy steps to select your option for 2019
Important: Understand your benefits and choose the right plan that suits your financial and healthcare needs. You are required to notify the Scheme of changes before 31 December 2018.
