Working at CSU

Open enrollment period now through Nov. 27

November 8, 2013

Human Resources benefits open enrollment, an employee's annual opportunity to make changes to their benefits plan for the next calendar year, is now through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Faculty, administrative professionals and non-classified staff can participate in this open enrollment.

You must complete the open enrollment process if you are:   

  • changing your benefits enrollment options (plans, pre/post-tax status, coverage levels, beneficiaries, etc.)
  • enrolling or continuing participation in a flexible spending account, health or dependent care in 2014
  • adding or removing a spouse, domestic partner, civil union partner or children under the age of 26 on your insurance plans (you must provide the social security number of any dependents)
  • changing your defined contribution plan retirement company beginning with 2014 contributions

Employees enrolled in a defined contribution plan should review your fund selections to ensure that they are consistent with your financial goals, and review your vendor selection; open enrollment is the only time you can change your defined contribution plan vendor.
