Open Enrollment Ends Nov. 30

Time is almost up for Open Enrollment changes—the deadline for enrollment is Monday, November 30! You can enroll on MyU to make changes to Medical, Dental, FSA, Disability Insurance, and Additional Life benefits. Learn more about benefits offerings, rate changes, and resources on the Open Enrollment Webpage. You can also learn more on the U of M Virtual Benefits Fair.

If you do not participate in Open Enrollment, your 2021 benefits will remain the same as they were in 2020 except Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). If you want an FSA for 2021, you must enroll, regardless of whether or not you had one in 2020. All benefit changes become effective on January 1, 2021.
