INITIATING OPEN ENROLLMENT
Once logged in, you can either scroll down on your home screen to the My Benefits Widget and click on “Start Open Enrollment”:
OR you can navigate to My Info>My Benefits and click on Enrollment and then select “Start” under the Open Enrollment tile:
ELECTING BENEFITS AND ADDING DEPENDENTS
Once you have initiated your Open Enrollment you will navigate through the tabs on the left side of the screen to elect or waive coverage by either clicking on the next available tab on the left OR clicking on “Continue” in the upper right corner:
Please select or waive coverage for each of the plan options. If there are multiple plans offered and you would like to compare the offerings, click on "compare plans" in the upper right corner, then select the plans and plan attributes you’d like to compare and click “Next”.
When you are done reviewing, click OK:
To waive the plan, click on “Waive all” and enter a waived reason, if applicable:
To elect the plan, click on the box next to the desired plan and then choose your coverage level:
If you are electing a coverage level to include your eligible dependents, you will be required to add them to the plan once you have selected the coverage level. Please note that there is a section for your Spouse AND a section for your Child(ren). Under each section that is applicable, you will click on +Add and select “Add New” if your Spouse and/or Child(ren) are not already in the system or “Add From Existing Contacts” if your dependent(s) are already in the system.
If you are adding from existing contacts a pop-up will come up with your available options and you will select the circle next to the correct contact and they will then be attached to the plan:
If you are adding a new contact, a pop-up will come up to add the contact’s information. You will need to add in First Name, Last Name, Relationship, SSN, Date of Birth, Gender, and Full-Time Student status and then click on “Continue”, and they will then be attached to the plan.
You can then continue adding children, or click on “Save and Select” and move on to the next tab of your enrollment.
Please Note that once a contact has been added to the system they will be under the existing contacts, you will not need to add them as new again.
EMPLOYER PAID PLANS
Employer-paid benefits are provided at no cost to you. However, you may need to add your beneficiary. In order to do so, click on "details" below the plan and then "additional information" and click on +Add to add your beneficiary.
Once you have selected the beneficiary, you will be required to put in the percentage of the benefit they should receive. Note that this amount must equal 100%, so if you elect less than that you will be required to add an additional beneficiary.
Once your beneficiary updates have been made, click on “Save and Select”.
SUBMITTING OPEN ENROLLMENT
Once you have reviewed your elections and all tabs have a green check-mark next to them, you can click on the Confirm & Submit tab:
In this section, please review your elections and download a pdf copy for your records. Then click “Submit” in the upper right corner:
You will then be required to enter your password to confirm your enrollment and click on “Accept”:
Your Enrollment will then be sent over to Human Resources for review/approval.
