Still need to enroll in benefits? Act fast. Open Enrollment ends at 5 p.m., May 11

Open Enrollment ends at 5 p.m. May 11. Don't worry, you still have the chance to make the smart call on your benefits choices. CU offers extensive medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability insurance and spending/savings plans. This annual opportunity allows employees to enroll in, change or waive their benefits for the plan year beginning July 1.

In most cases, if you are happy with your current benefits, you don't need to act. You will be automatically re-enrolled on July 1 in the plans you currently have. See the auto-enrollment page for details. There is one exception: Employees who wish to keep their Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA), must re-enroll.

How to enroll:

  1. Log into the employee portal.
  2. Find the Benefits Enrollment link in the Benefits tile.
  3. Click Select to begin.
  4. Choose your plans.
  5. Click the Submit button.
  6. Review your submission after 24 hours.

 Within 24 hours, your choices will be posted to your Benefits Summary. Please review your selections through the portal's Benefits Summary to ensure you've enrolled in the options you intended. It is located directly above the Benefits Enrollment link. To view your new elections, enter the effective date of your benefits enrollment (7/1/2018) and press the 'Refresh' button.

Receive your benefits notices electronically

This year, enrollees can opt in to receive electronic benefits notices via email. Notices will be delivered to CU inboxes and stored in the portal for convenient future access - saving paper and reducing mailing costs. Find out how.

Enrollees will continue to receive medical and dental plan cards and other items via mail. Anthem will send new cards to all plan participants this summer.
