Four reasons to complete annual enrollment for 2020 benefits

November 01, 2019

Annual enrollment for 2020 benefits is underway. Use this important time to make sure you will have the benefits you want for 2020.

Annual enrollment, your chance to elect benefits or make changes to your coverage, runs through Friday, November 15. Log on to Benefits Connect during this time to complete your annual enrollment for coverage effective January 1, 2020.

Even if you want to keep the coverage you have now, here are four reasons why you should complete annual enrollment:

  1. You may have new options available to you, or the costs for benefits you have now may change effective January 1.
  2. You won’t have another chance to elect benefits or make changes until annual enrollment in the fall of 2020 for coverage effective January 1, 2021, unless you have a qualifying life event, such as getting married or welcoming a child, during the year.
  3. If you’re enrolled in the Death and Disability Plan, you’ll learn about plan changes for 2020 that will provide greater income protection for you and your family — at no additional cost to you.
  4. If your employer offers flexible spending accounts (FSAs), you must actively enroll for these accounts every year; elections do not roll over from year to year.

Learn more about annual enrollment, including what’s new for 2020, how to make your elections, and the benefits available to you. Then, visit Benefits Connect by November 15 and make your elections for 2020 coverage so you can be sure you have the coverage you want as of January 1.
