Open Enrollment Is Here!!!

Posted on behalf of Sheryl Gordon, Employee Benefits. 

Open enrollment is finally here! Whooooohooooo!

Jumping

Find answers to the most often asked questions during EVERY Open Enrollment. 

  • Learn what changes you can make…
  • Learn how and where to make your changes by logging into “My Account”…
  • Find out where to attend a benefits fair…
  • Find out if there are any Webinars left…
  • Find out how to enroll or re-enroll in   Flexible Spending and/or Dependent Care Assistance…

During Open Enrollment each year you can change plans, add or remove eligible family members, waive your health coverage if you have a valid reason under PEBB rules, enroll in the Flexible Spending Program or the Dependent Care Assistance Program or (if you need to) re-attest to the spousal coverage premium surcharge.

Register Online

Unless you’re adding family members never on your account before, you will DO IT ONLINE at – If you’ve never registered before, you will need to do that first.  On your MY ACCOUNT  you will change plans, add or remove family members, re-attest if you need to (by clicking on the “my attestations” tab at the top of the page) of your “My Account.”

Add Family Members

If you’re adding eligible family members never before on your account, you will need to submit a 2016 paper enrollment form to Human Resources because you will also have to provide verification (prove they are your family members).  Find the forms under “Get a Form” in the green tabs on the PEBB WEBSITE

Stay Up to Date

There’s still one webinar left —on Monday, November 23 and lots of benefit fairs.  More information at Benefit Fairs and Webinars. Also, be sure to check out the October “For Your Benefit” newsletter. 

Compare Plans

A VERY, VERY COOL FEATURE ON THE PEBB WEBSITE is the Medical Plan Comparison Tool  You can compare the benefits of three health plans at once.

Re-enroll in FSA or Dependent Care Programs

During Open Enrollment each year you can also enroll or re-enroll (you must re-enroll every year) in the FLEXIBLE SPENDING ARRANGEMENT PROGRAM and/or DEPENDENT CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM  – great way to keep more of your money in your pocket.

Most Asked Question

AND, OH YES, the most often-asked question during every Open Enrollment is . . . .”If I don’t want to make any changes and I don’t need to attest to any of the surcharges, DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING……..And the answer is “No.”

Halloween 2015 Photo Gallery!

Halloween is officially over at Green River College (although there is probably still lots of candy at front desks across campus). They day was filled with celebration, humor, friendly competition, and even a Fall Harvest thanks to the CSC Committee.

Halloween2015-01

The best part about Halloween on campus was getting to see coworkers, students, and faculty dressed up in a variety of costumes. Some areas went all out and coordinated a departmental theme for the day.
