It’s almost that time of year again! UNM Benefits Open Enrollment for the 2017-2018 Plan Year (July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018) is tentatively scheduled for the end of April / early May 2017. The exact dates will be announced as soon as they are confirmed. Be sure to keep an eye out for the April Mid-Month Reminder and check the HR website for updates.
As a benefits-eligible employee, Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to make changes to your UNM medical, dental, vision, life, long-term disability, and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance plans. Changes you make to these benefits during Open Enrollment are effective July 1, 2017.
Note: Certain benefits-eligible employees are not eligible for life and disability benefits, but may make enrollment changes to health benefits. See Benefits Eligibility at a Glance.

Open Enrollment instructions and information to help you make decisions about your benefits for the coming year will be communicated primarily on the Benefits Open Enrollment webpage* and via email from Human Resources. During Open Enrollment be sure to check the HR website for updated information.
