Insurance Benefits

Departments

Reminder that an ENJOB ePAF does not terminate employment or insurance benefits. If an employee is not expected to return to work, a TERMI (termination) ePAF should be submitted. If an ENJOB ePAF is submitted in error, and the insurance remains active for the employee, departments are solely responsible for ALL insurance premiums due (both employee and employer portions), for all months insurance coverages remain active.

Employees

Employees enrolled in insurance who are not working in the summer, as well as 9 month employees who did not have summer premiums pre-deducted, will be billed for "out of pocket" premiums due. If premiums are not paid by the due date:

  • For full-time employees: All dependents will be dropped from health coverage and all optional coverages will be canceled
  • For part-time employees: Health coverage and all optional coverages will be canceled

Employees can only re-enroll in cancelled coverages during open enrollment unless a qualifying life event has occurred. If you have any questions, please email webmaster.payroll@ttu.edu.

 

COVID-19 Related EOPS Payments

To aid in tracking any special payments related to COVID-19, please use the following information when completing Employee Special One-Time Payments, EOPS, for payment to employees.

  • COVID-19 should be the first line in the Detailed Explanation of Payment section.
  • Include as much information as possible in the Detailed Explanation of Payment section.
  • Any LSP payments to nonexempt staff should include a worksheet of hours worked and an overtime calculation, as appropriate.

EOPS deadlines can be found here. Working remotely limits the ability to pull EOPS payments from the regular on-cycle payroll process. Please ensure the EOPS is completed correctly and submitted timely to ensure processing on the appropriate payroll cycle.

The IRS has also updated the online Withholding Calculator that can be used to confirm the correct amount of tax is withheld from your paycheck. We encourage you to review your withholding this year because of the recent changes to the tax law.
