Under the terms of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), it is required that a summary annual report for all welfare benefit plans be furnished to plan participants and beneficiaries. To facilitate a single printing, the reports for the plan year ending December 31, 2016 have been combined in this notice for distribution to employees and House Staff members.
The summary plan descriptions ("SPD") for Duke's benefit plans are included in the benefits booklet below. If you want to know how your rights are protected under the benefit plans, then this is the place to look.
A printed copy of these summary plan descriptions may also be obtained by contacting the Human Resource Information Center at (919) 684-5600.
