Have 2023 Open Enrollment questions? We have answers

Questions about Open Enrollment?

Open Enrollment is the annual opportunity to elect the benefits that best meet the needs of you and your family. All benefits-eligible employees must complete Open Enrollment during October 2022 for calendar year 2023 benefits.

Enrollment begins at 8 a.m. CT on Oct. 17 and ends at 11:59 p.m. CT on Oct. 28. Elections are effective Jan. 1–Dec. 31, 2023, unless you have a qualifying life event.

We are here to help

Online enrollment labs

Due to health and safety concerns and Human Resources staff working remotely, we will be offering virtual one-on-one meetings. Please see the schedule below. To register for a 15-minute slot, sign up here. In order to meet the needs of all faculty and staff, we ask that you review the Detailed Enrollment Guide and come prepared with your specific questions.
