Open Enrollment for all benefits-eligible employees begins today, April 26, 2017 and runs through Friday, May 12, 2017. The VEBA Opt-Out period runs concurrent with Open Enrollment, applicable to current VEBA participants only.
Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to enroll in, cancel, or make changes to your medical, dental, vision, life, and disability* insurance plans. Changes made during Open Enrollment are effective July 1, 2017. You will not be able to make changes to these benefits after Open Enrollment unless you experience a Qualifying Change of Status Event.
During the Open Enrollment period, current VEBA participants have the opportunity to opt-out of VEBA. The option to opt-out of VEBA is only available once a year during this time. For more information about VEBA, please visit the VEBA webpage.
As a reminder, Open Enrollment materials for active employees will be posted online** this year to reduce costs of producing and mailing printed materials. Please visit the Open Enrollment webpage for details about FY18 changes, how to make changes to your benefits, FY18 premium rates, vendor sessions, how to opt out of VEBA, and other important information related to Open Enrollment.
NOTE: Your current benefits elections will continue for the 2017-2018 Plan Year unless you make changes during Open Enrollment. If you would like to review your current Benefits, please follow the instructions below:
