If you or your eligible dependents elect to enroll in the plan benefits, the appropriate premium must be deducted from your monthly pension benefit.   However, in rare cases, if the amount of your monthly premium is greater than the gross amount of your pension check, special arrangements will be made to allow you to submit a payment, for the difference, directly to the Fund Office.  If this circumstance applies to you, you will receive a letter from the Fund Office advising you of the remaining monthly premium amount due. Enclosed with the letter, will be remittance forms that you must use if you are mailing checks or money orders to the Fund Office.  We also accept on-line electronic payments from your checking, savings, or credit card account.  

Please note that for on-line electronic payments an additional convenience service fee applies ($1.50 for checking or savings account transactions and 2.5% for credit card transactions).  Before you can use the on-line electronic payment system, the Fund Office must establish an account for you on the electronic payment website. Once your account has been established, click here and enter your UID# (without the dashes) to access the electronic payment system.  To assist the Fund Office in processing your electronic payment, you must specify the month(s) for which you are paying in the applicable section on the electronic payment website.  

Once you have made your payment, you will receive a confirmation number and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that you will provide on the electronic payment website.  It is recommended that you save the confirmation for your records.  Regardless of the method of payment you select for submitting your premium payment, failure to submit timely will result in cancellation of coverage.
