Benefits Open Enrollment Ends Wednesday

As a reminder, the annual Benefits Open Enrollment period will be open through, Wednesday, May 8, 2019.

Please visit My Personal Information and select Self Service Benefits to enroll.

Benefit changes and elections made during this Open Enrollment period will take effect on July 1, 2019. Refer to the Self Service User Manual  for instructions using MPI to enroll.

If you do not take any action during open enrollment, your current benefit elections will remain in place except the health care flexible spending account or the dependent day care flexible spending account. Federal regulations require employees elect flexible spending accounts each year.

Please note that when adding new dependents, employees will need to provide documents to verify eligibility. Documents may be uploaded online during the enrollment process or submitted to the Human Resources Employee Service Center in HRTC by May 8th. More details regarding required documentation can be found on the Verification of Dependents page.

Detailed plan coverage options are available on the Open Enrollment web page  and were shared at informational sessions over the past few weeks. There is a computer available for employees in the Human Resources lobby in HRTC from 8am- 5pm for those who need assistance using MPI to elect benefits. Please have your OHIO ID and password available as well as the required Multi-factor Authentication set up.

Enrollment is the annual opportunity OHIO employees have to make changes to their benefits coverage plan options. In compliance with Federal regulations, other than during the annual Open Enrollment period, employees can only change their benefits if a qualifying event occurs. Review the when can I change page for details regarding life events that allow changes to be made.

If you have any questions or would like more information please contact the Benefits Office at benefits@ohio.edu or 740.593.1636.
