Updated ICI Premiums Effective Feb. 1, 2022

Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) premiums are reviewed annually, and any updates are effective February 1. Premium changes for 2022 will be reflected on the February 24, 2022, paycheck.

If you are currently enrolled in the ICI program, visit the ICI Premium Notice web page for your personalized updated premium amount. Current enrollees were sent an email January 25 with a link to this web page.

Several factors determine your premium amount:

Your Earnings

  • For Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointees: ICI premium* is based on your 2021 eligible earnings and the elimination period you elected when you enrolled.
  • For University Staff: ICI premium* is based on your 2021 eligible earnings and unused sick leave balance as of December 18, 2021.

    *If you were placed on an intermittent furlough, temporary work reduction, consecutive day furlough or were on an unpaid leave of absence during 2021, review ICI Premium Notice web page for information on how your premium may be affected.

Premium Rates

For 2022 the ICI premium rates will decrease by 50%.

Deferred Enrollment Period

The ICI annual premium update does not reflect any enrollment made during the ICI Deferred Enrollment period which began in January and ends March 1, 2022. Employees who are eligible to participate in the ICI Deferred Enrollment period received notification about their opportunity via an email sent January 15.
