Time-Sensitive Information for Employees 

  • The 2015 Health Benefits Transfer Period runs from October 1 through Saturday, October 31, 2015. Participation is not mandatory and if you are currently enrolled in an insurance plan and you wish to keep that plan for the coming year, you do not need to do anything. The transfer period (also known as “open enrollment”) is the only time during the year that you have the opportunity to make changes to your City health benefits without experiencing a qualifying event such as a marriage or the birth of a child. Changes made to your elections will go into effect on the first full payroll period of January 2016.
  • The Open Market Hiring System closed on August 7, 2015 at 11:59 pm. The Excessed Staff Selection System (ESSS) is now available for current UFT school-based staff in excess (including teachers in excess who are on leave) who wish to submit applications to schools or specific vacancies.
