Friday, Oct. 30, is the last day to review or make changes to your benefits for 2021. Learn more about upcoming information sessions and how to access your current elections.

The last day to review or make changes to your current benefits is Friday, Oct. 30. If you wish to elect a different health plan, add or drop a dependent, or enroll in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), visit Workday to complete your Open Enrollment elections for your 2021 benefits. 

No action is required unless you wish to make changes or need to enroll in any benefit for 2021 that previously was not a part of your elections.  All selections will roll over, except your FSA. Remember, you must enroll or re-enroll to receive the FSA benefit for 2021.
