The deadline for open enrollment for insurance is approaching

Eligible employees have until Tuesday, October 31, to make selected changes to their insurance coverage for the following year. Changes made during open enrollment take effect on January 1, 2024. If changes are not made by the deadline, employees cannot make changes until the next open enrollment period unless they have a qualifying life event during the year .

Employees satisfied with their current choices as reflected in PEBA MyBenefits do not need to take any steps to continue their coverage in 2024 unless they wish to re-enroll in Money Plus flexible spending accounts. MoneyPlus members must re-enroll each year to continue coverage.
