Benefits Open Enrollment 2018

The 2018 annual Benefits Open Enrollment period is now closed.

Open Enrollment is the one time each year you can enroll or make changes in your healthcare benefits. Otherwise, changes may only be made if a qualifying family status change  has occurred. Any enrollment changes made during the enrollment period will be effective July 1.

The 2018 annual Benefits Open Enrollment period was Monday, April 9, 2018 through Friday, May 4, 2018.

An individual email will be sent to all benefits eligible faculty and staff with more information and further instructions once the Open Enrollment period begins. During Open Enrollment you can make changes to your coverages and re-enroll/enroll in a Flexible Spending Account for the next plan year.

Online enrollment is being offered directly through My Personal Information (MPI)*. Refer to the Open Enrollment User Manual for instructions. *Multi-factor Authentication is required to Access MPI: Self Service Benefits.

Dependent Documentation Required
Those who add a dependent during open enrollment must submit proper documentation (Marriage Certificate, Birth Certificate, etc.).

Documents may be uploaded online during the enrollment process or sent via campus mail to Human Resources, ATTN: Benefits, HRTC or mailed via US mail to:

Ohio University Human Resources

ATTN: Benefits

If you fail to provide required dependent verification documentation, the dependent will not be enrolled and you must wait the next open enrollment period to enroll your dependent.

Parking
Athens campus Faculty and Staff are automatically assigned parking benefits and charged for a parking pass.

Those who opted out of parking last year will not have to opt out again.

Visit the Parking Services website beginning April 9th to review your parking enrollment.

Life Insurance
We ask that all benefits eligible employees review their life insurance beneficiary each year during the Open Enrollment period.

A beneficiary can be any individual(s). Please note: you may also name trusts, estates or other non-individuals but these, as well as individuals in which you do not have a social security number will need to be documented on a paper beneficiary form.
