Several help options still available for benefits open enrollment

November 18, 2010

The deadline for enrolling in 2011 benefits is Nov. 24, but Staff Benefits is encouraging faculty and staff to enroll well before the end date. Enrolling sooner will allow employees to avoid high traffic on the online enrollment system, resulting in faster service, and will ensure that benefit ID cards and accounts are ready to go for the first of the new year.
For faculty and staff seeking benefits enrollment assistance, numerous resources are available.
