The Time is Now. Enroll, Make Changes ... It's the Annual Benefit Enrollment Period for 2013!
The Annual Benefit Enrollment Period begins on October 8, 2012 and ends on November 2, 2012. This is your annual opportunity to evaluate your benefits, review upcoming program changes, determine your coverage needs for next year, and make appropriate benefits changes. This is the only time during the year when you are eligible to make benefit plan changes unless you have a life event (e.g. marriage, birth, divorce...) or a change in employment that allows you to change your benefits. All changes made during this period take effect on January 1, 2013. Learn more about the Benefit Enrollment Period >>
