ALEX: Your Personalized Benefits Counselor
Are you aware that you have access to ALEX, your personalized benefits counselor all year round?
ALEX is an interactive benefits decision support tool that will help you understand the benefit plans and options that are offered to you and your family. Whether you’re a new or long term employee, ALEX is available to you 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 has been enhanced since the initial implementation to include all benefit plans (other than just the plans that the Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period focuses on). These additional plans include: life insurance, Income Continuation Insurance (ICI), the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), the Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) and Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC).
ALEX currently reflects the 2018 benefit plans and premium amounts; however, will be updated at the end of September 2018 to reflect the benefit plan changes (if applicable) for 2019.
The 2019 Annual Benefits Enrollment (ABE) period will be held October 1, 2018 – October 26, 2018.
We hope that you will make it a habit to visit ALEX with your basic benefit questions!
