New Optional Benefits Program

The University of Houston System (“System”) is partnering with Aflac and MetLife to sponsor several optional benefit plans for System benefits-eligible employees through payroll deduction. These supplemental benefits are in addition to the benefits currently offered by the Employee Retirement System (“ERS”); however, the cost of each product will be the employee’s sole responsibility and will not be supplemented in any way by the university or System.

The products being offered are Aflac’s Accident, Cancer, Critical Illness and Hospital Protection plans, and MetLife’s Universal Life with Long-Term Care plan.
