1)  EF enrollment for retirees is now OPEN     

         From now until 7 PM CT on Dec 29, 2018 update your Enrolled Friends for the next travel period (Jan 1st to June 30, 2019). Go to https://ft.ual.com, log in and click on the “Travel tab”; then click on “Manage pass riders”.

If you don’t have any changes to make then no action is needed (your current EFs will automatically roll over).


            Before calling the ETC with questions read the enrollment guide for retirees:   https://ft.ual.com/travel/passriderslandingpage/retireepasstravel/pass-travel-enrollment-for-retirees


            All retirees should have received an email from the ETC about Enrolled Friends.  If you did not then check your junk/spam folder and make sure your contact information with United is up-to-date (go to FT > employee services > Health & Insurance YBR > Your Profile in the upper right).

            

2) employeeRES “New” is now LIVE!

       The New employeeRES is now available on Flying Together for pass travel listing, loads and travel management. It has a look/feel similar to united.com, it’s mobile-friendly and there are cool new features including:

            Flight Watch: monitor up to 10 different segments

            Open Search: see flights with most available seats to a destination 

            Potential Misconnects: how many revenue passengers may miss your flight                          myUAdiscount: prices displayed right in employeeRES!

            

            Go to https://ft.ual.com, log in and then click on the Travel tab. Notice both “employeeRES New” and “employeeRES” in the left column are currently active.  We highly recommend you use “employeeRES New” right away. While there, click on “Personal Profile” to confirm all information transferred over OK; also, check your “Traveler Profiles”.  In a few weeks all traffic will be directed to “employeeRES New”.

            

            United sent retirees an email about the New employeeRES. If you did not receive it then check your junk/spam folder and make sure your contact information with United is up-to-date (go to FT > employee services > Health & Insurance YBR > Your Profile in the upper right).

            

BEFORE calling the ETC with questions about the new employeeRES, read this: https://ft.ual.com/travel/new-employeeres-information.  There are FAQs, how-to guides and a step-by-step booking tutorial.
