Open Enrollment Deadline: April 21
Please keep in mind that the deadline to make Open Enrollment changes is this Friday, April 21. The online enrollment site at www.upenn.edu/u@penn (click on “Open Enrollment” under Announcements) is available 24 hours a day, closing at midnight on Friday.
Several changes will take effect with the start of the new plan year (July 1, 2006), so make sure you’re aware of how your coverage may be affected. Details on these changes are in your personalized enrollment kit as well as on the Human Resources website (www.hr.upenn.edu, click on “Open Enrollment” under Benefits).
If you don’t make any changes to your benefits by April 21, you will retain your current coverage, including your current Pre-Tax Expense Account contributions. However, if you’re covering a dependent child between the ages of 19 and 23, you must certify his/her status as a full-time college student during Open Enrollment, or that dependent will not be covered under your plans as of July 1, 2006.
Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to review and make changes to your benefits for the coming plan year. Even if you don’t want to make changes to your current coverage, we encourage you to update your life insurance beneficiary information—simply go to the enrollment website (www.upenn.edu/u@penn, click on “Open Enrollment” under Announcements) to view and update your life insurance beneficiary information.
If you have any questions, the Penn Benefits Center is available to assist you. Call 1-888-PENNBEN (1-888-736-6236) from 8 a.m.–6 p.m., Monday–Friday.
