   Faculty and Staff    

Review your current benefit plan elections in myHR, including enrolled dependents and designated beneficiaries, and make changes as necessary during the Annual Enrollment period. If you do not make changes to your elections, your current enrollments will continue into the new calendar year, with the exception of Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). You must re-enroll in health care and dependent care FSAs each year.

Changes for 2021 must be submitted between October 26 – November 6, 2020.

You and your covered dependents will be enrolled in the same plans you have now. Changes for 2021 must be submitted by November 6, 2020.
