Verify your 2023 benefits elections

Have you verified your benefits deductions? Any changes you made during the annual open enrollment period will be reflected on your December and January payroll statements. Deductions for the 2023 calendar year began with the Dec. 2 paycheck.

Changes made to State of Florida-sponsored plans:

If you made changes to your State of Florida-sponsored plans during this year’s open enrollment period, you can view your confirmation statement online by logging in to People First and selecting the “Insurance Benefits” box, then selecting “Confirmation Statement.”

Premiums for State of Florida-sponsored plans are deducted from your paycheck one month in advance, except for flex spending and health savings accounts. Your 2023 premiums — including health, basic and optional life, dental, vision, etc. — will be reflected on your Dec. 2 and Dec. 16 paychecks for January coverage.

No benefit deductions will appear on the Dec. 30 paycheck because it is the third paycheck of the month. An exception is that employees who have not met their annual IRS limits for their voluntary retirement savings plans will have a contribution on their Dec. 30 paycheck.

Changes made to UF-sponsored plans:

The premiums for UF-sponsored plans, which include UFSelect and GatorCare, are not collected in advance, but are collected within the month of coverage. Therefore, deductions for 2023 coverage for these plans will begin on the Jan. 13 and Jan. 27 paychecks.

Next steps:

Be sure to review all your deductions carefully. If you have switched between a UF-sponsored plan and a State of Florida-sponsored plan, be especially sure to look for any deductions that may represent duplicate enrollments.
