AT$T Retiree Health Care Changes
The following email was received from CWA/T&T Vice-President Bill Bates: "Today, AT&T began its process for open enrollment for bargaining unit retirees. Information will be sent to retirees in waves. This week, information will be sent to retirees from the Legacy T, AT&T Southeast, AT&T Southwest and AT&T Mobility units. Open enrollment for this group will begin on October 14 and end on October 25. On October 21st, information will be sent to retirees from AT&T East, West and Midwest. Open enrollment for this group will begin on October 28 and end on November 8. There are two key pieces of information you should be aware of related to the open enrollment process: contribution increases effective 2014 and a change in coverage for Medicare-eligible retirees beginning in 2015."
