This year, the university has increased the amount of supplemental life insurance employees can purchase. Employees are now able to purchase up to $500,000 of term life insurance, and up to $20,000 for a spouse and $10,000 for a eligible child.

Each year employees have the opportunity to make changes to their benefit elections during the annual open enrollment period. Otherwise, changes may only be made if a family status change has occurred. If employees do not submit paperwork, all elections remain as is, excepting Flexible Spending Accounts.
