What is Open Enrollment:

Open Enrollment is the event that enables you to elect or make changes to your benefits. Please read through the Open Enrollment Guide carefully to understand the benefit plans available to you. After this open enrollment period is completed, generally you will not be allowed to change your benefit elections or add dependents until the next year's open enrollment period, unless you have a qualified status change.

How to Enroll, Re-Enroll or Make Changes:

The first step is to review your current benefit elections. Are you planning on enrolling in a benefit for the first time or make a change to your existing medical or dental plans? Have you updated your life insurance beneficiaries? Did you want to participate in Section 125 – Flexible Spending Health or Dependent Care (FSA) or Insurance Buyout this year?

  • Medical and/or Dental – New enrollment, addition, cancellation or changing plans requires an enrollment-change form to be completed. If you are not making any changes, your current elections will carry over to next year.
  • Medical BuyoutThis is an annual election; you must fill this form out each year in order to participate. Remember to include a copy of your current medical insurance card.
  • Section 125, Health and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA)This is an annual election; you must fill this form out each year in order to participate.
  • Group Life Insurance – For beneficiary changes, complete a beneficiary change form. If you would like to add or change your coverage amount, please contact Jessica Phelan.
