Citi Benefits Handbook
Claims and Appeals
If you file a claim for benefits under the Basic Life, Basic Accidental Death and Dismemberment, Business Travel Accident/Medical, Group Universal Life or Supplemental Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance plans, your claim generally will be administered in accordance with the timetable outlined below. For additional details on the specific claims and appeals procedures, contact the applicable Claims Administrator.
Important COVID-19-Related Changes that Extend Claims and Appeals Deadlines
On May 4, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor and the Treasury issued guidance that temporarily extends the deadlines in place for certain benefit changes and processes associated with election notification, payment and claims/appeals. To protect individuals from losing benefits, the agencies are adjusting the deadlines that may be missed during the “Outbreak Period,” which is defined as the period beginning March 1, 2020 and ending 60 days after the end of the National Emergency, which has yet to be announced.
If your deadline to file a claim or appeal (outlined below) falls within the defined Outbreak Period, you may have additional time to submit your claim, as the deadline will be recalculated to extend through the Outbreak Period.
For more information, contact the Claims Administrators as detailed under “Claims Administrators” in the Administrative Information section. Or, call the Citi Benefits Center via ConnectOne at 1 (800) 881-3938 for additional help. From the Benefits menu, select the appropriate option. See the For More Information section for detailed instructions, including TDD and international assistance.
