Accessing PittPerks and Enrolling in the Benefit
Eligible employees must enroll during the annual Open Enrollment period on the PittPerks website. New hires will be able to enroll outside of the Open Enrollment period.
If you decide to enroll in the MetLife Legal Plan, you will maintain the benefit through the plan year of July 1 - June 30. The benefit will automatically renew in the following plan year unless coverage is canceled during the next Open Enrollment period.
The cost of the plan ($17.00 per month) will be paid through payroll deductions--similar to other PittPerks voluntary benefits.
