Open Enrollment Begins Oct. 25: Are You Ready?

October 26, 2018

Open Enrollment begins at 8 a.m. October 25th and continues through 5 p.m. November 20th. 

This is the one time of the year for employees to evaluate their present coverage and explore a wide range of benefits options. For details on plan changes, benefits offerings and more, read our Open Enrollment story posted online. 

We also encourage you to participate in the Benefits Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Joseph E. Gallo Recreation and Wellness Center on campus. Attendees who RSVP by Oct. 31 will have breakfast available to them. Everyone who attends will be able to meet benefits vendors, campus benefits staff and participate in free wellness screenings. 

To further support campus employees in making informed choices, our team is also hosting live Open Enrollment workshops. We will cover benefit options specific to our campus, 2019 eligibility and plan changes, premium contributions, and how to make selections and changes online using the UCPath self-service portal.
