The open enrollment period allows you to review, change or continue benefit elections every year. Keep in mind that benefit plan changes are only allowed throughout the plan year if it is during open enrollment or you have a qualified Section 125 event. During open enrollment, you can do the following:
- Elect or decline coverage, in addition to changing existing coverage.
- Review personal information and verify that covered dependents are named on the plan. (If there are inconsistencies between your personal and/or benefit information, you will need to notify your employer.)
- Confirm that the correct dependents are selected in order to be covered for every benefit including medical, dental, vision, etc.
