Annual enrollment for 2022 benefits starts October 25

October 12, 2021

​This year's annual enrollment is October 25 through November 12. During this time, employees may change benefits elections or add or drop coverage for 2022.

Annual enrollment is your opportunity to elect benefits or make changes to your coverage for the year ahead. Annual enrollment for 2022 benefits starts Monday, October 25 and runs through Friday, November 12. During this time, you can

  • enroll for benefits;
  • make changes to your current benefits elections;
  • add eligible family members for coverage; and/or
  • remove family members from coverage.

Annual enrollment is also a good time to review and update any beneficiary designations (beneficiary updates submitted during annual enrollment are effective immediately). And be sure to review your personal information, including your home and/or email address, and make any updates if needed, so you won't miss important mailings from the Board of Pensions.

Get ready for annual enrollment

If you haven't logged on to Benefits Connect in a while, it's a good idea to do so before annual enrollment starts, in case you need to request your user ID or password or set up your security features. Once you're logged on, you can review the benefits you have now and begin thinking about whether you would like to make any changes for next year.

After annual enrollment ends, you may elect coverage or make changes only if you have a qualifying life event, such as getting married or adopting a child, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity.
