Open Enrollment is Here!

The Office of Human Resources is excited to announce that the 2019-2020 Benefits Open Enrollment begins on April 24 and ends on May 15.

Open Enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity to make changes to the benefits you have elected, unless you experience a qualified status change. Open Enrollment is the best time to review your benefits elections, ensure that you have current dependents listed, ensure that your beneficiaries are up-to-date, and make changes to your elections.

Open Enrollment Materials

The Open Enrollment announcement letter and a benefits highlight pamphlet were mailed to the homes of eligible employees of this Open Enrollment period. Unfortunately, some individuals just received envelopes with nothing in them! We apologize for this inconvenience (but hopefully it got your attention!).

If you received an empty envelope, you can download the announcement letter and the benefits highlight pamphlet for your records and to see what's new this year.

All Open Enrollment materials will be available online by April 24 at
