Open Enrollment is Here!

The Office of Human Resources is excited to announce that the 2020-2021 Benefits Open Enrollment begins May 11 and ends May 29.

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.
