Your Benefits Resources (YBR) and associated website are now being administered by the firm Alight. When you access the YBR website or call, you are speaking with Alight personnel. The Alight Protection Plan (APP) is an enhanced fraud protection plan for your pension that requires your contact information to receive alerts. Alight has prepared a Question and Answer (Q&A) document to address frequently asked questions about the Fraud Protection Plan procedure. This six-page document is on the YBR website (www.ybr.com/DTEEnergy).
You may alternatively request the document by calling YBR directly 1-866-899-4383 and they will mail it. DTE and DEAR encourage you to enroll in the APP as soon as possible to benefit from its coverage. You can enroll in the Enhanced Fraud Protection Plan via the YBR website or by calling them. They will ask you for the required cell phone contact information.
DTE Energy retirees can find information regarding their benefits, retirements, obituaries, clubs/events and much
more on the newly updated website Your Benefits Resources www.ybr.com/dteenergy. The new website is easier
to navigate with information tailored to your personal needs and interests.
Your RRA provides you with an opportunity to be reimbursed for qualifying medical expenses for you and your spouse. This program began in January 2013. Some accounts (whose owner’s names have not been released) have not yet had any requests for reimbursement. Be aware that while the unspent dollars in this account do rollover at the end of each calendar year, they are not part of an estate. When one of the account holders dies the account remains with the surviving spouse – only receiving the allocation for one spouse and it will revert to DTE upon death of that surviving spouse. If you are one of those who have not yet submitted any requests for medical expense or premium payment reimbursement from your Retiree Reimbursement Account, please contact PayFlex to set up and begin using your account.
