Open Enrollment

This year's official Open Enrollment period is October 23, 2017 through November 3, 2017. Your new benefit elections will be effective on January 1, 2018.

During Open Enrollment you will have an opportunity to:

  • add, drop, or make changes to your medical, dental, LTD, vision and/or life insurance Buy-Up option(s);
  • update your beneficiary information (Life Insurance);
  • add or make changes to your additional, ROTH, and/or group supplemental retirement annuity (GSRA) plan(s); and
  • add or re-enroll in the Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). Please note: The annual maximum contribution amount for the Medical FSA is $2,650. This limit is per participant and not per household. Therefore, if an employee and their legal spouse both participate in their respective employer’s FSA plans, they may have a combined household pre-tax contribution of $5,300 for the taxable year but neither may contribute more than the $2,650 per person pre-tax limit (e.g. one cannot contribute $2,300 and the other contribute $3,000). There will not be a change in the annual maximum contribution amount for Dependent Care FSA which has an annual maximum contribution amount of $5,000.
