Coming Soon: New IRS Forms 1095-C and 1095-B

January 26, 2016 | In Benefits & Work/Life

In the coming months, you may receive one or two new Federal income tax forms — Form 1095-C and Form 1095-B.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), when you complete your 2015 tax return, you will be required to indicate whether or not you (and your eligible dependents) had qualifying medical coverage for all of 2015. This year, the University will send you a new tax form, Form 1095-C, which includes information about the health coverage offered to you by the University. In some instances, our insurance carriers will be sending you Form 1095-B. You may receive one or both of these forms. (See “Who Will Receive a Form 1095-C or 1095-B” to determine which form you will receive.) Continue reading

2016 and 2017 holiday schedules published

October 14, 2015 | In Uncategorized

The State Human Resources Act provides all State employees a holiday schedule that cannot exceed 12 paid holidays per year. Our research shows that the majority of employees use vacation time when students are on winter break. Furthermore, research reveals that closing for one week during this period will allow for a savings of approximately $250,000 in operational and energy costs, a measure that supports the University’s efforts to become a more sustainable employer as we strive to be a good steward of public and private resources. The other universities within the UNC System made the decision to close for one week some time ago. Continue reading

As previously communicated, the State Health Plan’s Enrollment and Eligibility platform has experienced performance issues since it was rolled out on June 1, 2015, and as a result, the Plan has decided to return to the previous system provider, Benefit Focus.

Furthermore, the State Health Plan’s call center will only be handling urgent issues during this period. Continue reading
