We hope to move to online enrollment in the future. But for now we rely on paper enrollment forms (see below) for almost all of our benefits. You may deliver completed forms to our office on 4C of the Central Building, or fax to 501.686.5386 with a fax cover sheet. Keep the original and fax confirmation for your files. You can also scan your completed forms and email to us at AskHR@uams.edu. If emailing, we recommend you send forms only from an internal UAMS email address so your document is secure.
If you don’t see the benefit form you need, contact Human Resources at (501) 686-5650.
How to verify your benefit change has been approved and keyed into SAP
1. Log into Employee Self Service.
2. Click on Benefits, then Benefits Participation Overview.
3. The Participation Overview as of date at the top defaults to today. Change it to a future date – the date your change should take effect – to see the change.
4. Click on each Plan Name to view more details, such as the annual FSA amount and employer premium costs.
5. Benefits Participation Overview only shows the benefits you have. To view a list of all benefits, including those you don’t have (a helpful tool for open enrollment), select UAMS Benefits Statement.
6.Check out the total compensation information on your Benefits Statement to see the value of your UAMS-paid benefits.
