Information 2024/2025


2024 Open Enrollment

Open enrollment is the employee's annual opportunity to elect and/or make changes to certain benefits for the new benefit plan year. Please review the open enrollment information provided below. 

Current benefits confirmation statement emails were sent out March 28 for your review. Please be aware the benefits confirmation statement email and other communication from the bswift system may have been/will be directed to your Junk Email folder.

April 1–15, 2024

July 1, 2024–June 30, 2025

To make open enrollment changes, you will log in with your Andrews username and password to the online benefit management system (bswift). You may use the step-by-step enrollment guide prepared for you.

Click "Start your Enrollment" and keep the following in mind:

  • Be sure to make a selection on each benefit before proceeding to the next.
  • Your wellness reward, if requirements were met in February and March, will be displayed as a credit under the health plan selection.
    • If you will be newly covering yourself and/or your spouse effective July 1, please watch out for communication from us in July for instructions on how the wellness reward requirements can be completed and the reward received retroactive to July 1.
  • Once enrollment is complete, review your elections and confirmation statement.
  • Be sure to email yourself a copy of your confirmation statement and keep this email as your proof of elections.
  • You may complete your enrollment and return to make changes as often as you'd like until April 15.

Please remember:

  • Flexible Spending Account (FSA) elections do not passively roll into the new benefit year (per IRS regulations).
  • FSA changes effective July 1, 2024, must be made during open enrollment through bswift.
  • Between April 1 and June 30, those on the high deductible plan who wish to make changes to their HSA elections for effective dates before July 1 need to contact benefits@andrews.edu rather than making changes in bswift.

Do you need help?

  • Assistance with general enrollment will be available. Please email benefits@andrews.edu to set up an appointment.
  • For questions regarding current UNUM coverage, please call 800-635-5597 for assistance. Additional information about UNUM benefits can be found in the Employee Benefits Guide or by contacting benefits@andrews.edu.
