Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to re-enroll?

Maybe- This is a time to re-evaluate your current benefits and make changes for the 2020-2021 year. Changes and enrollment made during open enrollment become effective July 1, 2020. You are only required to re-enroll if you want to make changes to your medical and/or dental insurance, enroll in flexible spending accounts (this will not automatically carry forward), and enroll in voluntary dependent life insurance. The current dependent life insurance policy terminates June 30, 2020.
