2018 Open Enrollment
Open Enrollment is a specific, time-sensitive period when employees may enroll in one of three different health care plans, dental, vision, cancer plans, life insurance, disability insurance, and more.
Types of Plans
Pre- and post-tax deduction benefit plans are available. Pre-tax deductions are taken out of your paycheck before taxes, and therefore reduce your taxable income. Post-tax deductions come out after taxes and don't effect your taxable income. The benefit plans you will enroll in during this period will be for Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018.
There are two different enrollment periods that overlap each year. The enrollment period is for pre- and post-tax Flexible Benefit Plans offered by the Pierce Group. This enrollment period runs from Sept. 4 - Nov. 9 at 5:00 p.m. One enrollment period is for the two pre-tax benefit options offered by the State Health Plan. This enrollment period runs Sep. 30 - Oct. 31.
