  • Reminder Faculty Summer Insurance Deductions
    Benefits eligible faculty paid over 9 months will have insurance premiums for this  summer doubled deducted in the April 1, May 1 and June 1st paychecks. Benefits eligible faculty on a salary spread paid 12 months will not be impacted. The insurance premiums are deducted from the monthly paycheck.

However, if there is a change in employment or family status, premiums may be affected.   HR Benefits & Payroll offices will coordinate any adjustments, if applicable. For example, if a faculty member separates from UTSA May 31, 2015, he/she is not eligible for summer insurance; the premiums will be reimbursed and COBRA will be offered.

If you have any questions about your insurance coverage, please contact HR Benefits at 458.4250 or
