Upcoming Change for DePaul's 403(b) Retirement Plan

A change to DePaul’s 403(b) Retirement Plan was announced on March 5, 2021. Effective on or around July 1, 2021, Fidelity Investments® will become the single service provider for receiving contributions and providing plan services for the DePaul University 403(b) Retirement Plan. This change will take effect for active employees, and for retired and non-active participants who still retain a balance in the Plan.

All retirees were sent a notice by mail in mid-March regarding this change. Detailed information and resources about the change can be found at

Information sessions will be held for retired and non-active employees with balances in the plan:
Participants may also schedule a complimentary one-on-one meeting with representatives from Fidelity and TIAA to discuss how the change may or may not impact your retirement savings strategy.

News for Retiree Medical Program Members

Retiree PPO & HMO Premium Payments During COVID-19:

For those Retirees who are enrolled in the Retiree PPO and Retiree HMO plans and send monthly premium checks to DePaul University’s Benefits Department, please continue to send your payments to Human Resources. Revised coupons for PPO and HMO 2021 premiums were sent out by the Office of HR the first week of December. Note: We are not able to process checks more frequently than once per month given the current stay-at-home order, but we are collecting payments from the office at least monthly and will increase frequency when protocols allow.  In the meantime, please do not be concerned if your check is not cashed in a timely fashion.  Also, do not be concerned that you will have a lapse in coverage due to DePaul not cashing your premium payments.  You will have continued coverage while we are unable to process your checks, and we will reconcile any uncashed checks as soon as we are able to access the office again.

MAPD Premium Payments During COVID-19:
2021 MAPD bills were issued by BCBS on December 15, 2020, and will be sent out each month on the 15th. MAPD Retirees should continue to make monthly premium payments directly to BCBS as you have been – there is no change to their process for the time being.
