Open Enrollment begins today; all those eligible for benefits are encouraged to participate
The annual period to enroll in benefits or update current elections—known as Open Enrollment—begins today, and continues through Nov. 18. This is the only time of the year when faculty, staff, GAs/fellows and part-time instructors who are eligible for benefits may elect or change their coverage, unless they undergo a “qualifying life event.”
Those who do not wish to make changes to the benefits they elected last year do not need to actively affirm their choices this year, with the exception of the fexible spending accounts, for which contributions must be elected annually. All SU employees are encouraged to take this opportunity to review their benefits, familiarize themselves with plan changes and choose the best options for themselves and their families.
All choices will be in effect from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2012.
Complete information about the Open Enrollment process, benefits options and how to enroll is available at the Open Enrollment website: http://openenrollment.syr.edu.
