ALEX: Your Personalized Benefits Counselor
The UW System introduced a new interactive benefits decision tool, called ALEX, for the recent Annual Benefits Enrolllment (ABE) period. ABE is over for 2018 elections but ALEX is here to stay!
ALEX is a personalized benefits counselor that can help you understand the benefits plans and options that are offered to you and your family. Whether you’re a new or longtime employee, ALEX is available to anyone at anytime to learn more about the benefits that are offered or that you have selected. Even if you don’t have a current enrollment opportunity, ALEX can be a helpful tool.
ALEX reflects the 2018 benefits and premium amounts. In early December, ALEX will be enhanced to include modules about the life insurance plans, Income Continuation Insurance, the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), as well as the supplemental retirement plans [Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) and Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC). There will also be some enhancements based on employee feedback received during ABE.
We hope that you will make it a habit to visit ALEX with your basic benefits questions!
