Open Enrollment 2019

Benefits Open Enrollment Available Nov. 1–Dec. 2

Benefits Open Enrollment is open in MyU from Nov. 1 through Dec. 2. This year you can change medical or dental plans, enroll in an FSA, add or increase disability coverage, or make changes to additional life insurance. HealthPartners Dental will not be offered in 2020, so current HealthPartners clients should enroll with Delta Dental. Learn more about this change and all other open enrollment options that will take effect on Jan. 1, 2020, on the Open Enrollment website.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Enroll Annually for Your FSA!

During Open Enrollment, UPlan members can set up a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for routine out-of-pocket health care or dependent daycare expenses. You may contribute a maximum of $2,700 to a health care FSA and a maximum of $5,000 to a dependent daycare FSA.

Regardless of whether or not you had an FSA in 2019, If you want an FSA for 2020, you must enroll during Open Enrollment. Enroll on MyU by December 2.

First 2020 Pay Date Moved From January 1 to January 2

The first scheduled pay date of 2020 is Wednesday, January 1. However, New Year's Day is a bank holiday, which means pay cannot be delivered on that day. In order for employees to receive their pay in the same tax year that it normally would be paid, the University will move this pay date to the following business day, Thursday, January 2. The University's standard practice is to move pay dates one day earlier if they fall on a bank holiday, except in this rare case when that move would change the tax year in which the earnings would be reported.

You may have received an email from University of Minnesota life insurance vendor Securian Financial with links to a tool to help you figure out your life insurance needs or sign up through MyU. If you’re interested, you must act before Open Enrollment closes on December 2, 2019.
