• Welcome to Open Enrollment 2022!

    What is open enrollment?

    Open Enrollment is a one-month window (May 1- 31) each year during which employees can change their benefits coverage. All changes made during Open Enrollment are effective July 1 (the start of the following fiscal year).

      • Enroll or make changes to your medical, dental, or vision coverage for the upcoming plan year for you and/or your eligible dependents
      • Contribute to a Health & Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account or a Commuter Parking & Transit Flexible Spending Account (FSA)*
      • Enroll in Supplemental Life Insurance
      • Change or add life insurance beneficiaries for your OUSD-paid plan

    *Flexible Spending Accounts require re-enrollment! You won’t be automatically enrolled in any Flexible Spending Account (FSA) – you need to make an election to participate in an FSA each year. All other benefits elections do roll over from year to year.
