Reminder for Support Staff: Benefits OE Forums Start This Week

October 19, 2020

Annual Benefits Open Enrollment (OE) is November 2 - 20, 2021.

To help you make the right choices, we invite you to join one of our Benefits Information Forums about 2021 offerings. Due to COVID-19 protocols, there will be no in-person Benefit Expos. The health and safety of our community is our utmost concern.

Each of the four scheduled information forums for Support Staff will introduce What’s New for 2021, including 2021 contribution rates, presented by the University’s HR Benefit Specialists (Health & Welfare, Retirement , Tuition). Following each presentation will be an opportunity for employees to ask questions. 

Go to our Benefits Information Forums page for the schedule and to register.

You Must Enroll in Your 2021 Benefits by November 20, 2020. If you do not enroll, you will be automatically re-enrolled in your current Medical, Vision, Dental, Transit/Parking Reimbursement Program (T/PRP), Life Insurance (Optional, Spouse and Child), and Optional Long-Term Disability coverage. 

If you wish to participate in the Healthcare FSA, Dependent Care FSA, and/or Child Care Benefit (Non-Union Support Staff and Local 100 only) in 2021, you must re-enroll during Open Enrollment. 

We look forward to your attendance at a Benefits Information Forum.
