PERFORM! Engage. Empower. Elevate.

Every staff member contributes to the overall success of our University.  All staff members, no matter how skilled, need opportunities for continued learning and success.  Both employees and supervisors have a responsibility to actively participate in the performance management process.  The process includes planning for performance by setting clearly defined objectives (individual goals), on-going coaching (formal and informal), and highlighting success, while emphasizing the importance of follow-through.  This process aligns with the University’s mission, specifically providing opportunities for learning, discovery, and engagement.

To prepare, supervisors and employees will discuss, agree and enter the employee’s objectives for 2019.  Entered the objectives in connectU by January 31, 2019.

2017 IRS Form 1095-C

Form 1095-C (Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage) is a new tax form required by the IRS as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to report information about health insurance coverage offered to you by the University. If you were enrolled or eligible to enroll in a UM health plan during calendar year 2017, you will receive an IRS Form 1095-C by March 2, 2018.

The University will provide Form 1095-C (employee statement) to employees and will file copies with the IRS.

Form 1095-C is a tax form. While information on this form may assist in preparing your 2017 federal income tax return, it is not required. It is not necessary to wait for Form 1095-C in order to file.

Please consult with your tax advisor if you have questions about how the information reported on the 1095-C will affect your tax return and taxes. Additional information about this form and other Health Care Information Forms may be found on the IRS website.
