Bank Draft – Automated Bank Drafts of your insurance premiums can be set up on a monthly basis from either a checking or savings account, and are processed on the 5th of each month. The Bank Draft Authorization form may be obtained online or from our office at the address on this page.
Check/Money Order – Monthly premiums not set up on bank draft will be set up on monthly invoicing and sent to your mailing address. Payments are made payable to Texas A&M University, and can be paid by check or money order. Please include the payment stub from the invoice so it is credited correctly to your account. Remember to allow ample mail time to ensure delivery before the due date. You may contact our office for information on quarterly, semi-annual or annual payment options.
In Person – Payments may be delivered to the HR office during normal business hours: Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Please bring your invoice stub with your payment.
We do not accept cash.
Important Notice for New Retirees
You will be mailed an invoice for the first month's premiums following your retirement. For example, if your retirement date is August 31st, you will be mailed a bill for September premiums during the first week of September. Payment must be received before the 15th of the month to avoid cancellation. If you completed a Bank Draft Authorization form prior to your retirement date, the bank draft will start the second month following retirement, if your account is up to date.
Returned Bank Drafts/Checks
Returned items, whether for insufficient funds or for a closed account, may result in cancellation of coverage until the balance is paid in full. When a returned item is received, a letter and an invoice will be mailed to you for payment by either money order or certified bank check (no personal checks). Two returned bank drafts will result in your account status being changed from automatic draft to monthly billing. BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 1, 2011, A $30.00 FEE WILL BE ADDED FOR ALL RETURNED ITEMS, AND WILL BE DUE AT THE TIME PAYMENT FOR THE RETURNED ITEM IS MADE.
