Not for Open Enrollment
(Valid from date of attestation through December 31, 2018)
If you and your spouse have reached tobacco-free status (i.e., you have both been tobacco free for 12 consecutive months after attesting to using tobacco in 2017), you may use the link below to log in and re-attest to your tobacco-use status. By re-attesting that you and your spouse have been tobacco free for 12 consecutive months, you will not be charged the 25 percent tobacco surcharge during the remainder of 2018. The surcharge will be removed within two pay periods.

Tobacco attestation for calendar year 2019
To attest—during Open Enrollment—to your and your spouse’s tobacco-use status, use the link above. Your attestation will determine whether or not you will pay a 25 percent tobacco surcharge in 2019.
This link is available ONLY during the fall Employee Benefits Open Enrollment. Attempting to use the live link at left will apply your attestation to the current calendar year and not to the next calendar year. As a result, you will be accessed a 25 percent surcharge to the total cost of your health insurance in 2019, regardless of your response to the attestation question.
