Helpful reminders about selecting benefits for 2021

September 11, 2020

Now is the time for employers to review and change benefits offerings for 2021. Log on to Benefits Connect to make your selections and submit your Employer Agreement.

Now through October 9 is your opportunity to review and change benefits offerings for the following year. Log on to Benefits Connect to submit your Employer Agreement with your benefits selections for 2021.

Here are a few reminders about your Employer Agreement:

  • The selections you make on your Employer Agreement will determine the options available to your employees during annual enrollment, starting October 26.
  • Even if you don’t want to make changes to your offerings for next year, please review and submit your agreement. This is a good time to review your contact information and make any necessary updates.
  • If you would like to add a new benefit or benefit group, call our Employer Services team to discuss pricing.
  • Even if you have already submitted your Employer Agreement, you still have time to make changes before the October 9 deadline. Call Employer Services to discuss the best way to accomplish your goals.

When you log on to Benefits Connect to complete your Employer Agreement, you will see new benefits options for 2021:
