To sign up for Automatic payments, log in to your Benefits Manager and navigate to Automatic payments menu under your name on the top right corner of the screen.
You can sign up for automatic payments if you have one or more earned premium periods to pay.
Automatic payments are terminated when you lose earned eligibility. You will need to sign up for automatic payments when you re-qualify for coverage.
Sign up in your Benefits Manager, and your monthly premium will be deducted from the checking or savings account you designate. You will not receive quarterly payment coupons/reminders if you are enrolled in automatic payments.
If you are on pension deduction or automatic payment, the rate will automatically adjust effective the first of the month in which your spouse turns age 65. We will continue to deduct your monthly premium as long as you remain eligible for coverage, even if there is a change in your premium rate. You will be notified in advance of any changes to your eligibility or premium rate.
The cut-off date to sign up for automatic payments is the 20th of the month prior to the due date. Payments will be deducted from your checking or savings account around the 25th of the month prior to the due date. If you sign up for automatic payments after the 20th of the month, your 1st payment will be submitted immediately. Subsequent premium payments will be deducted from your account around the 25th of the month.
