Open Enrollment: Choose your own healthy every after -- choose your benefits, April 17 - May 5

A few quick things to know:

  • Passive enrollment: If you would like to keep the same benefit choices, no action is required and you will be automatically re-enrolled. If you want to make a change, we'll provide many ways to learn about and compare plans. 
    • There's one exception: You must actively enroll in Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) for plan year 2023-24.
  • Now is a good time to consider other benefits: Do you need to update your beneficiaries, enroll in or adjust voluntary retirement contributions, enroll in a Health Savings Account or make changes to your life insurance policies? Even though you can do these things anytime of year, Open Enrollment is a great time to take a closer look. Full plan details will be available on April 17.
  • How to enroll: You will make your Open Enrollment changes in the portal using the benefits enrollment tool. If you need a login or have access issues, visit our enrollment tool access page.
    • Note: The Benefits Enrollment Tool will be unavailable from 4 p.m. April 22 to 4 a.m. April 23 for maintenance.
