May 2017: HR Updates
Get your benefits plan all settled with the upcoming open enrollment period, running from May 11–25.
The annual benefits open enrollment period is scheduled from May 11, 2017–May 25, 2017.
This is your annual opportunity to review your current benefit elections, make changes to your medical, dental, and life insurance coverage, as well as enroll (or re-enroll) in a health care or dependent child care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for the new plan year.
As was true last year, Open Enrollment for plan year 2017–2018 will be completed online via an electronic open enrollment form. The form allows you to login, enroll, and change your benefits online—at work, home, or from any computer with internet access—anytime during the Open Enrollment period. Note: VPN access is NOT required.
For more information, to access the open enrollment system, and to see updated benefit packages, visit the Human Resources website.
