This is a flyer for distribution to all Building and Trades staff at FP&M. Starting in 2022, Building Trades employees (also referred to as “Crafts Workers”) will be eligible to receive the employer share of the monthly State Group Health Insurance premium like other UW System faculty and staff. In summary: UW will pay 88% of the total health insurance premium. If you’re currently enrolled in state health insurance: you will not have to pay the full premium starting in January 2022. If you aren’t already enrolled in state health insurance, you must enroll by Oct. 22 in order to take advantage of the new monthly premiums in the table below.
