    If you haven’t had a chance yet to view the 2021 BU Recap, or to watch the recordings from each track, including downloading any session handouts, you still have time! These resources will be available on the Benefits U Conference page until the end of this year. 

  • Benefits U Conference Recap

    Oct 13, 2021, 8:29 AM By MOSERS

    Thank you again for attending the 2021 Benefits U Conference! We certainly appreciate all of your feedback and invite you to enjoy the 2021 BU Recap! We have also reviewed and edited the recordings for each track and removed the introduction, breaks, and wrap-up sessions to allow direct access to the session content. All four tracks are on the BU Online page. This is a private channel accessible only via this link. If prompted, you may register to watch the recording by entering your name and email address. Each recording provides a timing breakdown and you may easily move through the recordings by using the progress bar at the bottom once you hit play. Recordings are also available on the BU Webpage.  


    If you attended BU, you received a sneak peek of Phoenix! Phoenix is the new pension administration system, which you will be using to interact with MOSERS starting in the next 12 to 18 months. 

    For those of you who attended BU, if you felt overwhelmed with all the information regarding Phoenix, don’t worry! If you did NOT attend Benefits U, don’t worry!

    Thorough training and ongoing support are in the future and will be provided closer to our go-live date. Attendees saw how efficient and automated Phoenix will be as it interacts behind the scenes with SAM II and non-SAM II payroll files. This level of automation will improve the accuracy of our member data, which ultimately increases customer service.

    If you would like more information regarding Phoenix, you can read past HR Update articles about Phoenix here

    We cannot do what we do without YOU! Thank you for all of the work you put in to help us serve our members.
