DePaul's 403(b) Retirement Plan Transitions to Single Service Provider

In late July 2021, Fidelity Investments® became the single service provider for receiving contributions and providing plan services for the DePaul University 403(b) Retirement Plan for active employees, and for retired and non-active participants who still retain a balance in the Plan. Additionally, all eligible custodial mutual funds moved from TIAA to Fidelity. All annuity holdings participants had with TIAA were retained by TIAA.

News for Retiree Medical Program Members

Premium Payments for Retiree PPO & HMO Plans:
On June 1, 2021, HealthEquity/WageWorks became the direct bill administrator for Retiree PPO and Retiree HMO plans. This change only impacts where you send your payments and is not changing current health plan offerings and or coverage eligibility. All current members were mailed details regarding this change; click here for the letter. Additional information will be sent by WageWorks (which is a part of HealthEquity) in May 2021. Note: For any payments received by the Benefits Department at DePaul University for months after June 2021, we will coordinate submission with HealthEquity/WageWorks, so that your HealthEquity/WageWorks records reflect that payment.
Premium Payments for Medicare Advantage Plan:
For retirees in the Medicare Advantage Plan, you should continue to make monthly premium payments directly to BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) as you have been – there is no change to their process for the time being. Medicare Advantage Plan bills for 2021 will be sent out each month on the 15th.
