Important Announcement: Open Enrollment Period (Plan Year 2016-2017) for All Full Time, Benefit Eligible Employees

Good Morning:
The employee benefit open enrollment period will take place from Monday,  April  11th to Wednesday, April 27th.
What is Open Enrollment?
Open enrollment is the time of year for all full-time, benefit eligible employees to review and make changes to their benefit elections. It is also the time when benefit plan design changes and semi-monthly contribution rates for the next plan year are announced.
Our new benefit plan year will officially begin on June 1, 2016.  Any benefit changes made (during open enrollment) will be effective on June 1, 2016.
During Open Enrollment full time, benefit eligible employees may…
  • Enroll in, change, or drop medical, dental, and/or vision coverage
  • Add, change, or drop dependent coverage
  • Enroll in a flexible spending account program (health care and/or dependent care)
  • Review and update your life/AD&D insurance coverage
In order to assist you in making informed decisions, we will provide more detailed information starting next week. 
Thank you,
Joseph Housenick
