Open Enrollment Presentations and Events

Tuesday, November 4 2014

Open Enrollment, the time each year when you can change your medical plan and sign up for other benefits, is a good time to consider any changes to your situation, plan ahead for significant medical events and take stock of your physical wellbeing. UC offers a wealth of valuable benefits for faculty and staff, and Open Enrollment is a great time to be sure you’re taking advantage of those that are suited to your needs.  We invite you to participate in local Open Enrollment events and to review the information on the Open Enrollment website.
