What's Happening in Human Resources
Request for Dependent Information Email
Over the next few weeks, HR Benefits will be emailing faculty and staff members who have obtained CMU-sponsored medical coverage for a dependent but have not yet provided that dependent's Social Security Number (SSN) to the university. Faculty and staff members should follow up via phone with HR Benefits using the phone number provided in the email. Faculty and staff members should not reply to the email or email the dependent's SSN.
The Affordable Care Act requires insurers and employers to report to the IRS the SSNs of all employees and dependents who have obtained minimum essential health coverage. The IRS uses this information to determine whether an individual is subject to the "individual mandate" penalty tax for not having health insurance.
Please note that this message applies only to faculty and staff members who receive an email from HR Benefits regarding this issue; all other employees may disregard this message.
Winter Break 2016
The weekdays of December 27 through 29, 2016, are designated as Winter Break days. Carnegie Mellon University will be closed, and non-essential personnel should not report to work.
The Winter Break is designed to provide the campus community with additional time off during the winter holidays.
