Notice body

November is Open Enrollment month at Auburn University, and employees are encouraged to review the benefits packet that they are receiving in campus mail.

Open Enrollment for 2018 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, there is nothing they need to do to continue these benefits. No action on their part will be deemed to represent their wish for their elections to carry over into 2018. However, if they are currently enrolled in the Flexible Spending Account, or FSA, they must re-enroll or their FSA contributions will end as of Dec. 31. Remember that Auburn University offers a carryover provision, allowing employees to carry over up to $500 of unused medical spending account funds into the next plan year.

Additional information about changes for 2018 is available online and in the benefits packet that employees will receive.
