Open Enrollment 2013 - 2014

Beginning with this year, we are pleased to announce the first annual Open  Enrollment for all benefit eligible staff and faculty. 

Open Enrollment is the period where employees can review/elect/decline/ or make changes to their benefits for the upcoming calendar year. Once elections or changes have been made, no changes can be made during the year unless they are due to a qualifying/life changing event, e.g. marriage, divorce, birth, etc. 

Open Enrollment period is from November 1st to December 1st this year. Please take some time to review your benefits and use this time to make any elections or changes you would like. Once the 2014 calendar year begins, the next opportunity for benefit eligible employees to elect/decline/or change benefits will be during the 2014/2015 Open Enrollment period unless the change is due to a qualifying event.

Enrollment will be online using our new Online Benefit Platform. Employees will be able to review/elect/decline/or make changes to their benefits. Benefits included in this Open Enrollment are Medical Insurance, Dental Insurance, Vision Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, Accident Insurance, Basic Life, Supplemental Life Insurance for yourself and/or dependents. 

Since Basic Life, Accidental Death and Dismemberment, and Long Term Disability are 100% paid for by the University,  they will not require action on your part. Please click  the Benefit Overview link below for an overview of the benefits being offered.  After reviewing the links below, follow the instructions under Benefits Open Enrollment (below) to begin your enrollment process. 

Reminder - Your elections/changes will be effective January 1, 2014 with the first payroll deduction in December 2013.
