Open enrollment

Open enrollment

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.
