Effective 4/30/16, the NYPERL long-term care contract with MedAmerica Insurance Co. expires. Once a new vendor is selected and a contract is executed, new employees hired on or after May 1, 2016 will be given the opportunity to elect NYPERL coverage. New information will be provided as soon as it is available.
Current NYPERL enrollees will continue to be covered by MedAmerica as long as they do not stop paying their insurance premiums. However, automated payroll deductions will end at some point after May 1, 2016 for those enrollees who pay their premium via payroll deduction. Any new enrollee who signs up for coverage between March 1, 2016 and April 30, 2016, will not be able to elect payroll deduction as their payment method. MedAmerica will provide enrollees with alternate payment options when payroll deductions end.

The State University of New York Board of Trustees voted on January 24, 2017, to terminate MetLife as an approved carrier for both the SUNY Optional Retirement Program (ORP) and SUNY's 403(b) Tax Deferred Program.
May 1, 2017 is the expected date by which MetLife will be fully disengaged from SUNY plans. At any time between now and Friday, April 28, 2017, SUNY ORP and 403(b) plan MetLife participants must take the appropriate steps to re-direct and/or cancel any active SUNY ORP and/or 403(b) contributions that are routed for investment with MetLife. Inaction will result in active contributions being automatically redirected to a default investment provider after May 1, 2017.
Human Resources recommends contacting your MetLife representative to review options. For your convenience, our campus representative is Kenneth Walcyk who may be reached at (888) 883-6320 or (315) 431-6364, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUNY-approved ORP and 403(b) vendors are Fidelity, TIAA, Valic and Voya. Go online to retrieve campus representative contact information.
