It’s Open Enrollment Time! February 1 – 17, 2022

It’s that time again!  This year, all eligible employees will have the opportunity to participate in Open Enrollment Tuesday, February 1 through Thursday, February 17.  The Benefits Service Center (1-800-811-0689) will also be available to assist you from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. during the enrollment period.

As a reminder, open enrollment is your yearly opportunity to review and possibly rethink your current benefit choices to ensure you are in a plan that best meets the needs of you and your family.  Take the time now to review and select your benefits for the upcoming benefits year.


You will find more information in the open enrollment packet that will arrive to you by mail at home before open enrollment begins. If you do not receive your packet by February 1, call the Benefits Service Center (at the number listed below) to request a packet. You may also go online to Your Benefits Resources to review materials and enroll.


This will be a Passive Enrollment.  If you do not wish to make changes to your benefits coverage, your current coverage will rollover for the new plan year, with the exception of any Health Care Spending Account (HCSA), Dependent Care Spending Account (DCSA), and/or Health Saving Account (HSA) elections.  Per IRS regulations employees must actively enroll in HCSA, DSCA, and HSA each year.

If you wish to make changes during open enrollment there are four ways to enroll:

  • Online (through Workday): Log in to Workday, click on the “Benefits” icon, click on “Your Benefits Resources,” then click on the “Enroll in Your Benefits” link.
