Open Enrollment website and detailed guide now available

2021 Benefits Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment is your annual opportunity to update or choose the benefits that best meet your needs. To get the plans that are best for you, all benefits-eligible employees must complete Open Enrollment, even if you don’t plan to make changes or if you choose to waive coverage.

The Open Enrollment website is now live with the most up-to-date information for your 2021 benefits options. On the website, you can find helpful information such as:

Get to know your options now in preparation for enrolling on My VU Benefits between 8 a.m. Oct. 19 and 11:59 p.m. Nov. 2. You can make or change your elections as often as you want during this time. Keep in mind that elections save as you go through each step of the process, even if you do not click all the way through to the confirmation page.

Consider your choices carefully; changes and corrections cannot happen except within the enrollment period or within 30 days of a qualifying event, like getting married or having a baby. Benefits selected during the enrollment period will begin on Jan. 1, 2021.
