An Important Message for NCFlex Participants
May 2021
Webinar Opportunities - May and June
Vision and AD&D
This month we are discussing our Vision plan through EyeMed. Did you know EyeMed has online tools to help you estimate your costs before your appointment? They also have special discounts available to participants.

Learn about these features as well as what the plan covers and how it works, during one of our employee sessions next week:
In June we will discuss our Voluntary and Core Accidental Death and Dismemberment plans through Voya. Did you know that the Core plan is free to all eligible employees if you just enroll? And that having the Voluntary AD&D plan could provide additional payouts to your family above the coverage amount? Also, there is a FREE Travel Assistance benefit that goes along with these plans.

Learn about how these plans work during one of our June sessions:
Whether you currently have the plans, are eligible to enroll (as a new hire or have had a life event recently), or don't have the plans and are looking forward to next open enrollment, join us to learn more.

Register on our Webinar Page or from the above links. We will also post the recordings on the Webinar Page after the event. Bookmark the page for later use.

Please email us at ncflex@nc.gov with any questions.
NCFlex Coverage Continuation at Separation

NCFlex benefits are sponsored by the state. If you transfer within state government to another agency, university, select community college or select charter school, your NCFlex benefits transfer with you. Also, if you leave employment, most of these plans have options to continue coverage either at the same rate you pay as an employee or a small percentage more.

Thinking about retirement soon? Make sure you know your options when you leave. The following chart lists each plan and continuation options that are available:

(Although the flyer mentions retirement, these options are available for any type of separation.)
