Open Enrollment is the annual opportunity for benefits eligible employees to review benefit and premium information for the upcoming plan year (2014 calendar year) in order to evaluate and make any necessary enrollment changes.
During open enrollment you can enroll, change, or cancel the following benefits:
Effective date for all changes made during open enrollment will be January 1, 2014.
Open Enrollment is also the period when employees can enroll or re-enroll in the Health Care Reimbursement Account (HCRA) or Dependent Care Reimbursement Account (DCRA). IRS rules require re-enrollment each tax year to participate in HCRA and/or DCRA. Additional information is available regarding these accounts on the Benefits portal: Flexible Spending Accounts: HCRA/ DCRA .
If you do not wish to make any changes to your existing benefit enrollment(s), no action is required except enrollment into Flexible Spending Accounts (HCRA/DCRA) requires annual enrollment during open enrollment period.
