ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (excluding UCSD Medical Center)
The annual Open Enrollment period for health and welfare plan changes ends Tuesday, November 22nd at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Eligible faculty and staff need to visit the UC Open Enrollment website at http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/open_enrollment/ to make UC health and welfare benefit plan changes for 2012. If you do not wish to change your current health and welfare coverage, you need not take any Open Enrollment actions.
Open Enrollment is the time to enroll or re-enroll in the Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), which allow you to set aside funds to pay for health and/or dependent care while providing tax savings. You must enroll in FSAs during Open Enrollment to participate in 2012, even if you are currently enrolled.
Open Enrollment is also the time to enroll your children up to age 26 in your plans.
All Open Enrollment actions will be effective January 1, 2012. If you have questions or need assistance with your enrollment, please contact the Human Resources Department Benefits Office at 858-534-2816 or the person in your department who handles benefits information.
