It is the intent of the University to provide a benefits program with a broad foundation upon which employees can build for their security and well-being. The University reserves the right to seek quotations and/or competitive bids as well as modify, change, or eliminate these programs and plans as deemed appropriate and in the best interest of the University and its employees. Benefits coverage is governed by the specific contracts that are issued and provided after enrollment. The eligibility of employees for certain benefits may be based on employment status, date of employment and/or geographical location.
Employees can make changes in insurance programs during open enrollment. These time periods provide the opportunity to change plans, increase or lower the amount of coverage or enroll in a program in which you had waived coverage earlier. Open enrollment is generally in April-May for University benefits and November-December for Federal benefits.
