New Employee Benefit Enrollment
Welcome to the University of Missouri Faculty and Staff Benefits Program. The University of Missouri recognizes that human talent is the University's primary resource and principal contribution to society. Now more than ever, the University is committed to maintaining strong, comprehensive health and wellness programs that engage our faculty and staff to be energized, innovative and healthy. As we move into 2015 and beyond, we want to help you understand your personal health, provide you with opportunities to manage your health proactively, and help you understand what medical benefits best support your health needs (and those of your family).

Enroll Now. You will be able to initiate your benefit enrollment online through the University's myHR, or you may complete the 2014 Benefit Enrollment Form below and submit it to your Campus Benefit Representative. If you are reading this note after October 31, 2014, you will also need to complete the 2015 enrollment form. Regardless of how you submit your enrollment, you must do so within 30 days of the date you became benefit eligible. Please do not submit enrollment using both methods.
Provided your enrollment is received within 30 days of the date you became benefit eligible, your coverage will be retroactive to that date. If you do not submit your enrollment within 30 days, you will not be eligible to enroll until the next Annual Enrollment period (usually two weeks in October or November of each year) for coverage effective on January 1 following the enrollment period (unless you experience a family status change, in which case you may make enrollment changes outside of the annual enrollment period).
