When to enroll in benefits


When can I enroll in benefits?



Newly benefits eligible employees have 60 days from the date of benefit eligibility to enroll in health, dental, FlexCash, voluntary group term life insurance (without completing the medical questionnaire), dependent and health care reimbursement plans.

Benefit eligible employees can also enroll in benefits during the annual open enrollment period held in September/ October for a January 1st effective date.

There are also "permitting events" that may allow you to enroll outside of 60 day election window or the open enrollment period. Please call University Personnel at 408-924-2250 for further information.
