What Is Open Enrollment?
Open Enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity to make changes to your current benefit election. This is the time to review if you want to maintain your current coverage, which family members you are including on your health plans, which plan you want. The open enrollment brochure distributed in May includes information regarding any changes to benefits or costs of the benefit plans. Changes you request during open enrollment will take effect July1 . The plan year begins on July 1 and continues through June 30.
Please be aware that decisions made during Open Enrollment are generally binding for the entire plan year. An individual may not make any changes until next year’s Open Enrollment period unless he or she has a Qualified Life Event (e.g., marriage, birth, adoption, etc.) and notifies the Human Resources Office of such a change within 30 days from the date of the qualifying event.
When must I submit my new elections?
All new elections must be received by Human Resources no later than 3:00 PM on June 13, 2014.
