Steps to enroll and steps to decline are included in the Substitute Benefits Information 2021-22.
Substitutes may also participate in the 403(b) plan. You may elect to open a 403(b) at any time during the year and not just during your 31 day enrollment period.

Changes in your Benefit elections cannot be made in the middle of the plan year, unless you have an IRS approved qualifying life event. These include marriage, divorce, birth or adoption, and termination or commencement of a new job by your spouse. If any of these apply, please complete the Change in Status Election Form and Aetna enrollment application, if you plan to enroll in the TRS ActiveCare medical plan. If you are not enrolling in the medical plan, then only the Change in Status Election form is required. Forms MUST be submitted to the Benefits office within 31 days of the qualifying event date. Forms are available on our website.
