November is Smoking Cessation Month

Tobacco smoke still accounts for the #1 most preventable death in the US – accounting for 1 in every 5 deaths. Throughout the month of November, 689 Moving Metro will be providing resources to assist our members who want to become quitters! While out at the divisions, engage with us to receive:

  • Smoking Cessation tips sheet
  • Tobacco savings calculator 

Additionally, all states have quit-lines with counselors specifically trained to help smokers quit. If you need support, call the number below to be connected directly to a counselor in your area: 1-800-Quit-Now.

Our team is also looking for members who have successfully quit smoking for longer than one year to highlight for this month! If you have recently quit and would like to use your story to inspire others, please contact us at wellness@tehw.org to express your interest!

When is Open Enrollment?

Beginning in 2016, Each November, you have the option to change your benefit plan, add or remove dependents or add or change your supplemental life insurance option. You will receive an Enrollment Guide and a Statement of Benefits to help you make your benefits choices. This is the only time of the year you can make changes to your benefits choices, unless you experience a change in status.

To make changes, you’ll need to complete an Enrollment Form and submit it to the Plan Office. Your changes will be effective the following January 1. For more information, see the Enrollment section of the Open Enrollment page.
