Stay informed

  • Frequently review your email for messages about your benefits, even if you are not on campus during the summer. Ensure that benefits@utsa.edu and benefits@utsystem.edu are added to your safe list, so the emails are not filtered from your inbox.
  • Review the monthly "A Matter of Health" Office of Employee Benefits (OEB) newsletter for updates.
  • Review the OEB dedicated Benefits Annual Enrollment website or the HR Benefits website for updates.
  • Keep your personal information up to date to ensure you receive messages.
