Open enrollment

Open enrollment is the period of time each year when employees are required to select a medical plan/benefits package. And, it is the only time employees have the opportunity to make changes to their plans unless they experience a qualifying event.

Open Enrollment for 2021 benefits will be Monday, Oct. 12 – Friday, Oct. 30, 2020.

This is a PASSIVE Open Enrollment, which means that unless you want to make changes to your current benefit elections, you do not have to login to PeopleSoft with some exceptions.


  • FSA medical and/or dependent care must be enrolled annually per IRS regulations. If you do not enroll during Open Enrollment, your 2020 election will not carry over and you will “waive” participating in the FSA for 2021.
  • If you would like to update/change any of your current (2020) benefit elections including changing your tobacco status, you may do so during Open Enrollment. Note: You will need to re-enroll in a medical plan if you change your tobacco status.
