Annual Benefits Open Enrollment 2017 for Full-Time Faculty, Full-Time Administrators,
and Full-Time Staff
Monday, November 6, 2017 through Friday, November 17, 2017 - Annual Benefits Open Enrollment Has Ended
The Annual Benefits Open Enrollment Period is the once-a-year opportunity to review your benefit elections and:
- Health Care Plan: Enroll, waive coverage, or make a change to the dependents who are enrolled.
- Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Plan: Enroll in an Account for 2018. You must make a new election to participate in the FSA Plan each year. Your 2017 election will NOT carry forward into 2018.
- Supplemental Life Insurance Plan: Enroll or change your current election.
- Long Term Disability (LTD) Insurance Plan: Change your coverage option.
The deadline for electing a Calendar Year 2018 Flexible Spending Account and/or making changes to your other benefit options is Friday, November 17, 2017. Please refer to the “What You Need To Do” information within each section for instructions on how to enroll and/or make a change.
Elections and changes made during the Annual Benefits Open Enrollment Period will become effective January 1, 2018. (Your effective date for Supplemental Life Insurance Plan changes may be different.) If you do not elect or make changes during this period, your next opportunity to do so will be during next year’s Annual Benefits Open Enrollment Period unless you experience a qualified life event during the year. Examples of qualified life events are: marriage, birth/adoption of a child, divorce, a change in employment status, or loss of other health care coverage. You have 31 days from the event date to notify a Benefits Representative in order to make changes to your coverage.
