New! Fall, 2015 HR Update

(Posted November 3, 2015)

Benefits Open Enrollment Period

(Posted November 3, 2015)

This year’s benefits open enrollment period will run from Wednesday, November 4, through Tuesday, November 24. "Open enrollment" refers to the official, annual period when employees can make changes to their benefit plans for the following plan year. This is the time to enroll in our health and/or dental plan, add a dependent, switch health–plan options, or drop a plan. The open enrollment period is also the only time when employees can opt to continue or open a health–care or dependent–care flexible spending account.

For more information about Open Enrollment, including tips on how to complete the updated forms, and a new "Health Plan Comparison Tool," please click here.
