Your Response Needed by March 31, 2020
Beginning January 1, 2020, The Railroad Employees National Health and Welfare Plan and The National Railway Carriers and United Transportation Union (NRC/UTU) Health and Welfare Plan (each a “Plan”) began conducting a spouse eligibility audit, administered by Railroad Enrollment Services.
With just over a month left for this audit, it is imperative that you respond to this request if you have not already done so. Railroad employees covered under either of the above Plans are required to submit proper documentation by March 31, 2020 verifying their marital status in order for their spouses (and any stepchildren associated with the marriage) to remain covered.
Employees covered by the above plans should have received an initial mailing in December explaining the audit process with instructions on how to respond, the Plan’s definition of a spouse, and preferred documents for verification.
If an employee does not respond to the audit request in accordance with the instructions provided, their spouse (and any stepchildren associated with the marriage, if applicable) will be terminated from the medical, dental, and vision plans as soon as administratively practicable.
Employees under the plan can go https://www.ytth.com/ to verify your spouse.
Employees can contact Railroad Enrollment Services at 1-800-753-2692 with questions about the audit.
