Select Your Benefits

  • When you enroll, indicate whether you use tobacco. If you have used tobacco products and answer “Yes” to the tobacco use question(s), you will be assessed a higher tobacco user premium on your Medical (if any) and Voluntary Life Insurance. If you do not answer the tobacco use question, you will pay the higher tobacco user premium for Medical and Voluntary Life Insurance coverage – even if you are not a tobacco user.
  • Enroll family members for healthcare coverage.
  • 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.

After you have completed your “To Do” list, select “Complete Enrollment” to review your elections.

You can:

  • Return to the benefits selection process and make changes, as long as the Open Enrollment Period is open
