If you did not elect dental and/or vision coverage when you were first hired or you want coverage different from what you have now, you can make a change during the Benefits Open Season. You may also be able to make changes to your enrollment in conjunction with a qualifying life event such as marriage, divorce, or birth of a child.
The Benefits Open Season begins the Monday of the second full work week in November and continues through the Monday of the second full work week in December. During the Benefits Open Season you can elect dental and/or vision insurance, if not currently enrolled; change plans or options, if currently enrolled; or cancel enrollment.
If you have a qualifying life event, you may be able to enroll or change from one plan or option to another depending upon the qualifying life event.
