Open enrollment is the period where employees can review, elect, decline or make changes to their benefits for the upcoming calendar year. Once elections or changes have been made, no changes can be made during the year unless they are due to a qualifying, life changing event, e.g. marriage, divorce, birth, etc.
Please complete these items during the open enrollment period (Oct. 2-Dec. 1, 2017):

- Enroll in cafeteria plan

All employees are encouraged to go through the enrollment process even if you plan to keep what you currently have. Not taking any action could result in the possibility of you having the incorrect benefits and deductions.
