New Benefits Pages - Coming July 2022!
Coming July 2022, Benefits pages used for Open and Enrollment and Newly Benefit-Eligible employees will have a new look!
After clicking either the Benefits Self-Service or Employee Self Service link, available on Wolverine Access, links will display based upon the time of year or eligibility to enroll.
During Open Enrollment (held each Fall), an Open Enrollment tile will display with important information and a countdown clock. You can click on the tile, when available, to review and make selections for the following calendar year.
If you are a newly benefit-eligible staff member, the UM New Benefits Eligibility tile will display on the Benefits or Employee Self Service homepages, when applicable.
If you have had a recent 'life event', you can also initiate the life event using the Initiate Life Event Elections tile, also available on the Benefits or Employee Self Service homepages.
At any time, eligible employees can also initiate retirement savings elections or make eligible changes using the Initiate Ret Savings Elections tile, also Benefits or Employee Self Service homepages.
Also new, the Benefits Statement tile, available on the Benefits or Employee Self Service homepages, allows you can select different statement types for viewing and printing.
A new mobile experience is available. The mobile experience is best used for Open Enrollment and New Hire events. Desktop is still recommended for Life and Retirement Savings events.

Time reporting will have a new look and feel!
Information and Technology Services (ITS) is working with partners in schools, colleges, and across the university's three campuses and Michigan Medicine to roll out a new design and additional functionality to time reporting. The upgrade will impact all employees who report, approve, or modify time. The upgrade will support a more mobile-friendly time reporting experience and ensure that the university maintains vendor support.
