Benelect open enrollment materials available online; Benefits Fair this week

Benelect open enrollment materials will not be sent via campus mail this year. The 2018 Benelect guide, a summary of Benelect changes for this year, price sheets and instructions for making your elections in the online enrollment system are available through the 2018 Open Enrollment webpage. Printed materials will be available at the Benefits Fair and in the Human Resources Service Center (Crawford Hall, Room 320) beginning Nov. 13.

The 2018 Benelect open enrollment period runs Nov. 13–30. The Benefits Fair will take place Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center Ballroom. All benefits-eligible university employees are encouraged to attend.

As a reminder, the Department of Human Resources once again will offer free flu shots to faculty and staff during the annual Benefits Fair. No appointments are necessary. Employees will need to present their Case Western Reserve ID cards when checking in. This will be the last opportunity to receive your flu vaccination on campus.

In addition, Vision Service Plan will collect old eyeglasses for Eyes of Hope (PDF). These donations are recycled and distributed to children and adults throughout the world.
