Faculty, Academic Staff, and Limited Appointees eligible for the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) can choose to enroll for Early Income Continuation Insurance (ICI) effective the first of the month on or following their date of hire provided they enroll within 30 days*. Between the employee's date of hire and 12 months of WRS eligible service; however, they are required to pay the full cost for this plan and are enrolled in Plan Type 3Y - ICI Early coverage. At 12 months of WRS state service, they are eligible to receive the employer share of the premiums paid on their behalf. Benefit Administrators need to manually cancel the Early coverage under Plan Type 3Y and enroll them into the equivalent regular ICI Benefit Plan under Plan Type 3Z. This procedure will provide the steps required to fix the enrollments for an employee currently elected into Income Continuation Insurance Early (3Y) without a future dated election into regular Income Continuation Insurance (3Z).
NOTE: The employee may not change ICI elimination periods without completing an application. Please see the UWSHR website for more information.
