– Apply Now for Intel Scholarship for Retirees’ Children
The Intel Scholarship for Retirees’ children is a competitive scholarship program for students who are pursuing a two-year or four-year degree. You can apply mid-November through mid-January. For more information and an application go here.
– SERMA Reimbursement
The SERMA plan year runs from Jan 1st through December 31st of each year. You can submit claims for premiums incurred during these dates as long as you file your claim after your insurance coverage began and before March 31st of the year following (the “run-out” period) and you were eligible for a SERMA reimbursement when your coverage began. This run-out period provides you extra time to submit your claims. If you don’t submit your claims with complete supporting documentation by March 31st, your claim will not be approved.
You can click here and look at more information about SERMA, and you can go to the My Health Benefits website to check your SERMA balance.
– New Vault Cards will be available in Jan. (correction from last month)
Watch for the information on how to request them in our January News Flash.
