  • Annual Enrollment begins Oct. 24, 2015, and ends Nov. 15, 2015. Visit EmployeeConnect > Your Benefits Resources to make your elections. If you don’t make a change during Annual Enrollment, you will automatically be enrolled in the same medical plans you have today, but with UnitedHealthcare as your administrator.
  • Get the nitty-gritty benefits details. You’ll find helpful benefits information in your 2016 Annual Enrollment Guide, which will mail to your home in late October, and on the Quick Find. But if you want detailed information, visit Your Benefits Resources on EmployeeConnect to review Health Plan Comparison Charts. Summary Plan Descriptions for all our plans will be updated in early 2016.
