Updated Renewal Process

SBG & 51-100 Choice Portfolio

Language has been added that instructs brokers and employers as to their responsibility for obtaining and sending an electronic or printed copy of the SBC to plan participants and beneficiaries.

  • Starting with 12/1/15 renewals, the SBC(s) will not be provided in the renewal packets or by Account Management since they will be available online.

All other 51-100 plans, outside of the Choice Portfolio, will continue to follow the current process. Account Management will provide an electronic version of the SBC to the broker and employer.
