It’s time to select benefits for 2020

August 12, 2019

Log on to Benefits Connect through October 11, to select benefits for your employees for 2020 and submit your Employer Agreement.

Now is the time for employers to review, select, and change benefits offerings for 2020. Through October 11, 2019, log on to Benefits Connect to update and submit your Employer Agreement with your selections.

As you consider the best offerings for you and your employees, remember that the Board of Pensions offers a variety of benefits in addition to medical coverage that you can offer all employees — even part-time employees.

Here are some additional reminders about submitting your Employer Agreement:

  • The selections you make on your Employer Agreement will determine the options available to your employees during annual enrollment, starting October 28.
  • Even if you don’t want to make changes to your offerings for next year, it’s important that you log on and submit your agreement. This is also a good time to review your contact information and make any necessary updates.
  • If you have already submitted your agreement and decide you would like to add a new benefit or benefit group, you can still log on to Benefits Connect and make changes through October 11.
