Oct 09, 2014 - AT&T Annual Benefit Enrollment for Active Employees
Updated On: Jun 04, 2015

October 9, 2014


The AT&T Open Enrollment period for 2015 benefits will run from October 13th at 7:00 a.m. to October 24th at 7:00 p.m. Corrections can be made during the 2 weeks following the enrollment period.

An Annual Enrollment Guide was distributed electronically via company email, on October 3rd.  The Guide will also be hosted on the Benefits Center website ( or you can call the Benefits Center (877-722-0020) to request a copy be mailed to you.

This year the AE Guide is a clickable PDF so you can advance to your topic of choice without having to go through the entire document.

A company email reminder advising “Annual Enrollment is Here” will be distributed on October 13, followed by an “Annual Enrollment is Almost Over” reminder on October 21st.

If you signed up for eBenefits you will also receive these via your personal email on file with the AT&T Benefits Center. Employees who have opted for text communication with the AT&T Benefits Center you will also receive notification via text messages prior to Annual Enrollment.


Monthly Contributions for 2015 Bargained Plan Options will be as follows:

Medical Contributions for those hired/rehired or transferred before June 23rd, 2013:

Individual $70
Family $150

Medical Contributions for those hired/rehired or transferred after June 22nd, 2013:

Individual $135
Family $290

Deductibles and Coinsurance for the Bargained Medical Plans will not change for 2015. However, the Annual Out-of-Pocket Maximum Amounts are changing per the 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement. The new amounts are as follows:

Individual $2,000
Family $4,000

Individual $6,000
Family $12,000

There are no changes to the Prescription Drug, Dental, and Vision Plans.

Enrollment Process

The AT&T Benefits Enrollment website will show those currently enrolled, anyone who has had coverage before, and also anyone currently in the process of being certified. Each name is preceded by a box. Make sure the boxes for your eligible dependents are checked and also be sure to uncheck any boxes for those who are no longer eligible for coverage.

Your available plan options will be listed with a basic comparison chart for each. You can click on the Plan Details for each plan or check the boxes for multiple plans to compare the Plan Details. Once you have made a decision you can click “Keep” for your current plan or “Choose” for a new plan option. Your elected plan and a list of Who’s Covered will be displayed.

At this point you will be given the option to select paying for your coverage on a before-tax or after-tax basis. The default setting is before-tax unless you have elected to pay on an after-tax basis in the past. If that’s the case, be sure to change it as needed. You will go through this process for each of your benefits (i.e. Medical, Dental, Vision, Life).

Don’t forget to enroll in a Health Care FSA or Dependent Care FSA if needed. This is the only time of the year in which you can enroll in a flexible spending account.

Once you have reviewed your choices click ENROLL. An email confirmation will be available in the AT&T Benefits Center Secure inbox for 180 days after completion of your enrollment. You can view it and print a copy for your records.

If you have signed up for text or email communication and made changes to your current options you will receive a confirmation text or email from the company with a notice of change. The text or email will not provide change details. The details will only be available in the Benefits Center Secure Inbox.

The AT&T Benefits Center website is:
