Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment begins Nov. 1, 2023, and ends Nov. 15, 2023, for the plan year covering Jan. 1–Dec. 31, 2024.


During Open Enrollment eligible faculty and staff have the opportunity to review, renew and make changes to select benefit plans. You may:

  • Enroll, cancel or make changes to Health Plan benefit elections (Medical, Dental, Vision)
  • Add or drop dependents, based on Health Plan eligibility requirements (see dependent eligibility guidelines)
  • Enroll in Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) — continued participation requires re-enrollment each plan year
  • Make elections for voluntary group term life insurance (VGTLI) spouse and/or child(ren) coverage

Even if you are making no other changes, be sure to review your benefit information to ensure no changes are necessary. Open enrollment is also a good time to review your designated beneficiaries to determine if any changes are needed.
