How to Enroll

Fill out and mail your completed enrollment worksheet in the enclosed reply envelope you were provided, postmarked by November 21. You can also fax the completed worksheet to HR Shared Services at 919-905-9301 by November 21. Be sure to include a phone number where you can be reached if an HR Shared Services representative needs to contact you. Don’t forget to keep a copy of your completed worksheet for your records. Also, if you faxed your completed worksheet, keep a copy of the fax receipt confirmation for your records.

Important Notice

A confirmation statement will be mailed only to the homes of employees not actively at work.  A confirmation statement will be emailed to those employees that are actively at work.  Review your confirmation statement to make sure that it shows the coverage you chose. If you see a mistake, contact HR Shared Services immediately. Remember, you cannot make benefits changes in 2013 unless you experience a qualified status change. Keep your confirmation statement for future reference. If you cannot print or don’t receive a confirmation statement by December 11, contact HR Shared Services toll-free at 1-800-676-4636.

If You Don’t Enroll

If you don’t enroll by November 21, you and any covered dependents will be assigned default coverage. This means that you’ll automatically be enrolled in your current coverage at your current coverage level (that is, with the same covered dependents-unless a dependent is no longer eligible), at 2013 prices.

This default coverage may not meet your and your family’s needs for 2013. So it’s important that you enroll during the annual enrollment period and choose the benefits that are right for you and your family.

If you have any Benefits Credits remaining after you are assigned default coverage, they will be paid to you as taxable pay in 2013.

Also, if your spouse/domestic partner is currently covered under your Nortel Medical Plan, you will automatically be charged the spousal/domestic partner access fee of $50 each pay period in 2013 unless you recertify during this annual enrollment that your spouse/domestic partner does not have access to employer-provided medical coverage elsewhere.
