Benefits open enrollment Day 2: Employees encouraged to use available resources
Benefits open enrollment runs through 6 p.m. ET on Nov. 5. A dedicated enrollment website is available to provide detailed information about benefits enrollment for 2019. All employees are asked to actively enroll during this open enrollment window.
BoilerKey, Purdue’s new two-factor authentication service, will be required beginning Oct. 30 for system access including open enrollment. Visit www.purdue.edu/boilerkey for information and instructions.
Employees also can enroll for 2019 benefits using the Benefitfocus mobile app. Install the BenefitFocus app from Google Play for Android devices or the App Store for Apple Devices. Enter “enrollpurduebenefits” as the company ID and log in with career account and BoilerKey. For additional information on the mobile app, visit the open enrollment home page.
Walk-in labs and presentations are available to provide additional assistance to employees on all three campuses, and employees are encouraged to use these resources.
Benefits’ staff members are committed to providing excellent customer service and resources to help employees and their families best use these valuable programs. Please allow time for responses as customer service’s call volume increases significantly during open enrollment. As a reminder, the Human Resources customer service location in Stewart Center, Room G66, will be closed through Nov. 5 to accommodate open enrollment staffing needs at the various walk-in labs and presentations across campus.
Resources are available to assist faculty, staff throughout the two-week open enrollment time period
The deadline to enroll in 2019 benefits is 6 p.m. ET Nov. 5 (revised date), and Human Resources is encouraging faculty and staff to enroll as early as possible. Enrolling sooner rather than later will allow employees to avoid high traffic on Benefitfocus, the online enrollment system, resulting in faster service.
Numerous resources are available for faculty and staff seeking benefits enrollment assistance.
Live presentations and walk-in labs are available on all three Purdue campuses; a complete list of presentations and labs can be found on the Resources document.
