Annual open enrollment is the only opportunity to make changes to your current insurance benefit elections unless there is a qualified status change such as marriage, divorce, death, birth, adoption or loss/gain of coverage from a group plan. Each October, we offer an annual benefits open enrollment to provide an opportunity for employees to review their benefits and make any needed changes.
Any changes that you make during annual open enrollment will not be effective until Jan. 1 of the following year. Some benefit plan changes may require an Evidence of Insurability (EOI). This means that health questions will be required and coverage will not be effective until it is approved by the carrier. If you currently have a Flexible Medical Reimbursement or Flexible Dependent Care account, you are required to enroll each year. Flexible spending accounts do not automatically roll over to the next benefit plan year.
*Note: Short-term disability and whole life insurance enrollment will be offered in March 2018.
