enrollment milestones

All benefits-eligible retirees must enroll in Chevron retiree health benefits upon reaching certain enrollment milestones. Review the milestones here to refresh your understanding.

billing changes coming

With the transition to the new benefits administration platform, effective January 1, 2019 there will be changes to the way you pay for your Chevron retiree life insurance and pre-65 health benefits. Your action may be required. Additional information will be provided this fall.

direct debit

If your monthly payments are deducted from your bank account through direct debit, your action is required to set up Auto Pay on the new benefits administration platform, BenefitConnect. If your new account is not set up timely, you will automatically receive a paper bill in the mail starting in December 2018.

pension deduction

If your monthly payments are currently deducted from your pension annuity payments, this payment option will no longer be available. Your December 2018 premium(s) will be deducted from your December 2018 annuity check for the last time. In December you’ll also automatically receive your first monthly bill in the mail; this bill will be for payment of January 2019 premiums. You can also sign up for Auto Pay (direct debit) at any time on the new BenefitConnect website.

paper bill

If you currently receive a monthly bill from the HR Service Center for your Chevron benefits, you’ll continue to receive a monthly bill in the future. However, your monthly bill will have a new look and the address to send payments will be different. This change will start with the bill you receive in December 2018. You can also sign up for Auto Pay (direct debit) at any time on the new BenefitConnect website.
