Select Your Benefits

If you do not answer the tobacco use question, you will pay the higher tobacco user premium for Medical and Supplemental Life Insurance coverage – even if you are not a tobacco user.
  • Make your benefit elections for Medical, Dental, Vision, Supplemental Life Insurance, Dependent Life Insurance, Supplemental AD&D, Buy-up LTD and Group Legal Services.
  • You must make a Healthcare and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account election each year if you want either or both of these accounts.
  • Designate a beneficiary for your Life and AD&D Insurance.
