    Hello,

    Why the decrease in my check? I looked at my Benefit Change Notice Statement Dated
    September 30 – 2014 and it states my Net Benefit was increased but has been decreased. What caused my decrease?

      Jack,

      There are several reasons that check amounts change from one year to the next. But we can’t discuss individual checks on our blog. Please call usat 800-222-7377, and one of our Member Services representatives can help you.

      Patricia,

      This information is available through our webinars. You can sign up for one by clicking on this link. Also, we will be sending out Connector kits to all our eligible participants by the end of this month. The kits will have a lot of information about the Connector.
