Benefits Open Enrollment ends Wednesday, May 10

As a reminder, the annual Benefits Open Enrollment period will be open through Wednesday, May 10, 2023. 

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

Benefit changes and elections made during this Open Enrollment period will take effect on July 1, 2023. Refer to the MPI: Benefits Self Service User Guide [PDF] for instructions using MPI to enroll. 

Open Enrollment is a good time to review your enrollments and life insurance beneficiaries.  If you do not want to make any changes to your health, dental, vision, life, or disability insurance plans you do not need to take any action.  However, if you want to participate in a Flexible Spending Account you must log in and make that election each year. Federal regulations require employees elect flexible spending accounts each year.

Detailed plan coverage options are available on the Open Enrollment web page. A general overview presentation with a question and answer session will be held utilizing Microsoft Teams Meetings on Tuesday, May 9, 2023. 

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, uploaded to the Benefits Secure Site, or submitted to the Human Resources Employee Service Center in Lindley Hall 122A by May 10. More details regarding required documentation can be found on the Verification of Dependents page
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. 

Be sure to save or print the confirmation statement after you have completed the enrollment process. Enrollment errors cannot be corrected later without a confirmation statement clearly showing the coverage elected.
