Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is the annual opportunity for eligible staff and faculty to make changes to certain benefits, usually the medical, dental, and vision plans. At times, other plans such as legal and supplemental disability are also open for enrollment during this period. Open Enrollment is also the time for eligible faculty and staff to enroll or re-enroll in the Health and Dependent Care flexible spending accounts.

Open Enrollment generally occurs in November.
