Retirees: Make Sure Your Benefit Contact Info Is Up To Date!

Due to the changes to U of M email and Google Workspace offerings, the University of Minnesota is no longer able to provide Google Workspace (including Gmail) to University retirees, except those with emeritus status. If you have questions about your emeritus status, reach out to your former college or unit.

Many benefit plans or member accounts will ask for an email address. Please make sure your contact information on file is a personal email, rather than your U of M “” email. This will ensure you are able to continue receiving email communications and maintain access to online member accounts.

Don’t forget: After your U of M email and Google Workspace account is closed, you will not be able to use single sign-on (SSO) to login to your benefit accounts.

Health & Wellbeing Benefits

If you have a U of M email address associated with an account for your health savings account (HSA), medical, dental, life insurance, or COBRA coverage, make sure your information is updated with each vendor. Web addresses and contact information for each vendor can be found on the Medical - Age 65 and Over or Benefit Vendor Contacts pages of the OHR website.

You should also make sure your contact information is updated with health care providers, like your pharmacy, primary care physician, etc.

If you participate in the Wellbeing Program, don’t forget to update your login information so you don’t lose access.

Retirement Accounts

Update your contact information in Fidelity Investments’ NetBenefits® platform (or by calling 800-343-0860) and/or the MSRS website.

Securian Financial, TIAA, and Vanguard Funds

Reach out to the providers directly (see the Benefit Vendor Contact page).
