Open enrollment is held once each year in the fall. During this time, you can change your benefit plans, add and drop dependents, and add or drop coverage.
- If you make changes during open enrollment, your new coverage is effective on January 1 of the new plan year.
- Enrollment for Life insurance is subject to the approval of your Medical History Statement by the carrier.
- This is also the time to enroll in the Flexible Spending Account program (Health Care and Dependent Care). You must re-enroll every year, even if you had an account the previous year.
