Notice body

Auburn University employees who wish to learn more about the many benefits offered by the university are encouraged to attend next week’s Employee Benefits Fair.

The fair will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Recreation and Wellness Center. During this time, attendees can learn about the benefits that are available to full-time university employees and receive additional information regarding benefit updates for 2017.

Experts will be on hand to answer questions and to provide one-on-one consultations on topics including voluntary retirement, health insurance and wellness opportunities. Vendors include Blue Cross and Blue Shield, American Behavioral, WageWorks, Standard Insurance, Colonial Life, Auburn University Federal Credit Union, VALIC, Fidelity, TIAA, Lincoln Financial, TRS, Healthy Tigers, Campus Recreation and Tiger Perks.

Attendees should bring the event postcard that they will receive in campus mail along with their Auburn University ID to register for prizes.

Open Enrollment for 2017 benefits continues until Nov. 30, at 4:45 p.m. During this time, employees may enroll in, cancel or make changes to their benefits elections. IRS regulations do not allow for Plan enrollment beyond Nov. 30, unless there is a qualifying event during the year.

For employees who are currently enrolled in health, dental, vision and cancer insurance and who do not want to make any changes to their coverages, nothing needs to be done to continue these benefits. No action on their part will be deemed to represent their wish for their elections to carry over into 2017. However, if they are currently enrolled in the Flexible Spending Account, they must re-enroll or their FSA contributions will end as of Dec. 31.
