Benefits Open Enrollment

**Benefits Open Enrollment is currently 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. The annual enrollment period is held each year in the Spring.

Any enrollment changes made during the enrollment period will be effective July 1.

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 Medical, Dental and Life coverages and re-enroll/enroll in a Flexible Spending Account for the next plan year.

Dependent Documentation Required
Those who add a dependent during open enrollment must submit proper documentation (Marriage Certificate, Birth Certificate, etc.). Visit for a complete listing. Documents may be sent via campus mail to Human Resources, ATTN: Benefits, HRTC or mailed via US mail to:

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.
