DBR Open Enrollment Briefing

Monday, October 6 2014


Hello DBRs,

Please join us for our annual Open Enrollment briefing for Department Benefits Representatives.  The Benefits staff will present information about what’s new and what will stay the same in the 2015 health and welfare plans and programs.  Our Fidelity Retirement Counselor will also provide an overview of financial education programs and online resources.  This is your opportunity to learn what’s new and to ask questions.

The Open Enrollment period will begin October 30 and run through November 25 at 5 p.m. During Open Enrollment employees can change medical and dental plans, enroll or reenroll in Flexible Spending Accounts, add or de-enroll family members and generally review their UC benefits.

The full Open Enrollment website will be posted on UCnet ( ) around October 21.  The Open Enrollment booklets will also be mailed to employee homes about the same time.

Kevin Wilson-Smith<> (893-4455) has joined the Benefits Office and will be working with me in the Health Care Facilitator Program.
