2014 Open Enrollment Period

We are pleased to announce the upcoming 2014 open enrollment period for our benefit programs for all benefit eligible employees. Open enrollment is the employee's annual opportunity to elect and/or make changes to certain benefits for the new plan year, effective July 1, 2014. Please review the open enrollment information provided below.

April 1–16

To receive a 35% wellness discount on health premiums, both requirements must be completed
1. Meet the 2014–2015 biometric targets (please look for another email with more information on meeting this portion of the discount requirement)
NOTE: Both employee and spouse, if applicable, must complete this requirement
2. Meet with a Benefit Enrollment Counselor during open enrollment

To make open enrollment changes, you must schedule an appointment with a benefit enrollment counselor from Benefits Technologies, a benefit communication and enrollment firm that we are partnering with again year. These counselors will meet with you in an individual session and provide a clear understanding of benefits options, including the new Whole Life product, answer any questions you may have and aid you in enrolling in the plans you select.

Your spouse is not required to be present for the open enrollment session. However, if your spouse is also a benefit eligible employee, they should also go through the enrollment process to review and make any changes to their benefits.
