Benefits on-campus lab set for Oct. 27

Open Enrollment Benefits Lab

Open Enrollment is now underway until Friday, Oct. 29, at 11:59 p.m. CT. This year, all eligible employees must elect a health plan or waive coverage.

If you don’t complete the enrollment process, you will retain coverage (unless you waived benefits the prior year) and will be defaulted to the Choice Consumer-Driven Health Plan (Choice CDHP), the health plan option with the lowest premiums, at their current individual or family-coverage level.

If you need help enrolling or don’t have access to a computer, stop by the benefits on-campus lab on Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Kissam C210. The benefits team will be there to provide information and resources to help you make informed decisions.

In addition, you can:

  • learn about 2022 benefits,
  • get help making your elections online,
  • access a computer, and
  • talk to members of the HR benefits team.

VUnetID and password

You must have your VUnetID and password ready and active before you visit. If you need help with your VUnetID or your password, visit, or contact your IT support provider or the Help Desk.

DUO multi-factor authentication needs

Once you have reset your VUnetID and password, you will need to use Vanderbilt’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) system to access My VU Benefits and enroll in your benefit elections.

If you do not currently have DUO, you can download the DUO app from the Apple or Google Play stores. Once you have it downloaded, visit VUIT’s multi-factor authentication page to enroll and follow next steps.

If you are currently enrolled in the MFA system, simply go to the My VU Benefits website, log in using your VUnetID and password, and complete the MFA using a passcode from DUO.
