November Is Benefits Open Enrollment Month
Open Enrollment for calendar year 2018, the annual process during which faculty and professional staff can enroll in new benefit plans or make changes to existing coverage, will take place from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30, 2017.
Faculty and professional staff members who are not changing their elections do not need to re-enroll for most benefits; your current 2017 benefits will remain in effect for 2018. The only exceptions are the Healthcare and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts. For these plans, you must re-enroll every plan year.
The Open Enrollment Page on the Drexel HR website will be updated with detailed benefits information for 2018 by Nov. 1. To go directly to the enrollment site, log in to DrexelOne and click the “Benefits Service Center” link on the bottom right corner of the “Employees” tab. For more information, call the Benefits Service Center at 888.971.0101.
