What's New?


Annual enrollment time is here, giving you the opportunity to review your benefit options and choose a new health plan or make other benefit changes if you wish.  Visit our forms page to complete the GIC Form-1 if changes are desired.  All changes will become effective  July 1, 2016.

If you want to keep your current Group Insurance Commission (GIG) health plan, you do not need to fill out any paperwork. Your coverage will continue automatically.

Commonwealth Citation for Outstanding Performance 

State employees and their daily contributions throughout the workforce play a major role in the Commonwealth’s successful delivery of quality services to its citizens.  For thirty-two years, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Performance Recognition Program (PRP) has been an important means to publicly acknowledge and encourage outstanding performance. 

We are pleased to announce that the University of Massachusetts will participate in the 2016 Commonwealth’s Annual Performance Recognition Program (PRP).  PRP gives formal recognition to Commonwealth employees who make meaningful contributions which distinguish them from their peers. These special awards focus attention on consistent, positive achievements by both individuals and teams of state employees, and recognize those who demonstrate innovation and dedication to their work, concern for the public trust and a commitment to excellence.  All employees are encouraged to take a few minutes and make a nomination.
