Do You Need to Re-Enroll?

What You Need to Know: 

As you may know, Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to add, drop or change many of your benefits. Keep in mind that Benefits Open Enrollment takes place April 27 through May 15, 2015. Medicare Carveout Classic health plan members (retirees age 65 and over), please note that your opportunity to add, drop or change levels of health plan coverage takes place separately in November. All retirees, including Medicare Carveout Classic members, may add or drop the following during Open Enrollment: dental, vision, universal life, auto, home and pet insurance.

Did you know that you can make some benefits changes any time of year? There’s no need to wait for open enrollment to make some updates! Updates available year-round are: decreasing optional life insurance, adjusting voluntary retirement contributions and changing life insurance or retirement plan beneficiaries.

Certain changes to your benefits coverage may only take place during Open Enrollment: April 27 through May 15, 2015. Use the following guide to determine whether you need to make coverage changes now, during Open Enrollment.
