RETIREMENT & BENEFIT SERVICES DIVISION MEMORANDUM

January 26, 1998

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

ATTENTION: Personnel and Payroll Officers
SUBJECT: Supplemental Employee Benefits Program Workshop

Comptroller's Memorandum No. 97-8 announced the commencement of the Supplemental Employee Benefits Program (Program) and, within that communication, presented its components, and outlined issues pertaining to both implementation and administration.

By way of background, the Program is designed to provide employees with access through the central payroll system to offerings intended to complement those basic benefits the state funds either in whole or in part; all benefits available under the program are paid for in their entirety by voluntary employee payroll deductions. As currently constituted, the Program offers five supplemental benefits: (1) short term disability insurance; (2) long term disability insurance; (3) auto and homeowners insurance; (4) universal life insurance; and (5) long term care insurance.

In order to: (1) better familiarize agency personnel and payroll officers who have responsibility for benefits administration with supplemental products available at the present time; (2) discuss the long term care open enrollment already in progress; and (3) address issues that have been raised since the Program's commencement last year, the Comptroller's Retirement & Benefit Services Division will conduct a workshop on Tuesday, February 24, 1998 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Cromwell. Workshop registration is scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. during which continental breakfast will be served. The Radisson is located off Exit 21 on I-91; from either the north or south, turn left at the end of the exit ramp and proceed to the Radisson, which is on Route 372, on the left.

While there is no charge to attend the Workshop, it is necessary for all personnel and payroll officers planning to attend to pre-register by completing the tear-off portion of this memorandum and returning it to the Division no later than the close of business on Wednesday, February 18, 1998.

The Division's activities relative to this Workshop are being coordinated by Linda Arn, who may be reached with any questions or concerns at (860) 702-3483.

Very truly yours,

NANCY WYMAN, STATE COMPTROLLER
