2023 Benefits Open Enrollment Coming Soon

Open Enrollment is the period each year that you may make changes to your medical, dental and vision benefits without a qualified change in your family status (a Section 125 "Life Status Change Event"). Use this once-a-year opportunity to review your health care needs and make any changes necessary! Now is also the time to enroll in a 2023 Flexible Spending Account! If you want a 2023 Flexible Spending Account you must take action. 

If you do not have any changes to make to your 2023 health benefits and you do not want to enroll in a 2023 Flexible Spending Account, no action is required.

Payroll Deductions

Your payroll deductions are based on the new 2023 rates (coming soon), the medical plan and the level (single, two person or family) of coverage you elect. Changes will be reflected starting on pay period 26 (December 21, 2022) for the 2023 plan year. Nine-month employees may have additional adjustments to true-up the prepaid balance for summer 2022 coverage.
