CU urges you to go green by using its online tool to enroll in your benefits plans.

To take advantage of the benefits enrollment tool:

Step 1: Log in to the portal.

Access your campus portal at, select your campus, and enter your username and password. You may also find campus-specific assistance with your user ID and password..

Step 2: Find the Benefits Enrollment link in the menu.

Once you have logged in to the portal, select the CU Resources tab. (This step is unnecessary for CU System Administration employees.) Click "Payroll and Compensation," then "Benefits Enrollment."

Step 3: Click 'Select' to begin.

Step 4: Choose your plans.

All benefits plans for which you are eligible will be listed. Click "Edit" to enroll or change benefits plans.

If you'd like to waive your CU medical benefits, you must select one of the options below to specify whether you have coverage elsewhere. (This is a requirement of the Affordable Care Act.)

Step 5: Click the 'Submit' button.

After you have made all of your elections, make sure to click "Submit" twice to complete your enrollment.  A message will appear that all benefit choices have been successfully submitted to the Benefits Department.

Step 6: Review your benefits

Once you submit your enrollment, you may review your selections through the portal's Benefits Summary. It's located directly above the Benefits Enrollment link. To view your new elections, enter the effective date of your benefits enrollment in the date field and press the "Go" button.
