Open Enrollment Ends October 14

Posted by on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 in Articles, October 2011.

Open Enrollment, the annual opportunity to take charge of your benefits and elect the coverage that fits your needs for the coming year, ends at 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14.

This is the one time each year to review your insurance and spending account coverage and make choices for the upcoming calendar year. The benefit elections you make continue through the plan year (beginning Jan. 1, 2012), and cannot be changed unless you experience a qualifying life event.

Even if you plan to keep the same coverage in 2012, this is an active enrollment, which means you’ll need to log on to the online benefits enrollment tool and make your elections. If you don’t enroll, you will have the following default benefits for 2012:

Medical Plan—Aetna Standard, employee-only (even if you currently waive medical plan coverage)

Dental Plan—no coverage

Vision Plan—no coverage

Accidental Death and Dismemberment—no coverage

Flexible Spending Accounts—no spending accounts

Note: Your current Short-term Disability election will not change.
