One month premium refund coming to faculty, staff on Pitt dental plans

Faculty and staff enrolled in any of the University-sponsored dental plans from United Concordia will see a one-month premium refund in this month’s paycheck because of the limited access to dental services and providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those who get paid biweekly will see the refund in their June 5 paycheck; others will see it in their monthly pay on June 30.

The refund will appear on the pay statement under the term “Wellness Reward.” It will be for the total premium cost for one month, based on the plan in which the employee is enrolled, and will be considered taxable income.

Questions can be directed to the Office of Human Resources by submitting an online inquiry.
