If you are interested in any of the optional benefits we went over during orientation (dental, vision, life insurance, FSA account), you will need to turn in the paper forms to the HR department by Friday. You may also scan and email them to if you are located away from the downtown campus. If you are interested in any of the other benefits mentioned in the Wellington Benefits booklet, you will need to contact Wellington Benefits directly at (800) 924-3539.

If you would like to review the slideshow presented during orientation, click on the New Hires link to the right.

Beneficiaries for Retirement System

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

Some full-time employees may have recently received an email from Aaron Whitesell, HR Assistant, concerning their beneficiaries for the retirement system.

This email was sent to anyone who currently does NOT have beneficiaries listed for their retirement contributions or for the death benefit provided by the retirement system. If an active employee dies without choosing beneficiaries, these funds are paid out to his/her estate instead.

This may also be a good time for all employees to double-check to make sure the beneficiary information is up-to-date in the system. In order to review your beneficiary selections:

  • Visit
  • Click on the ORBIT logo.
  • Register your account (or log-in if you already have).
  • Click on View Account Summary and you should see the option to add beneficiaries.

Let us know if you have any difficulty accessing the system or adding in your information!
