Open Enrollment Deadline: Friday, April 20
April 17, 2007, Volume 53, No. 30

Have you made your Open Enrollment changes yet? If not, time is running out! The deadline to make healthcare changes is this Friday, April 20. The online enrollment site at www.upenn.edu/u@penn (click on “Open Enrollment” under Announcements) is available 24 hours a day, closing at midnight on Friday.

Several changes will take effect with the start of the new plan year (July 1, 2007), so make sure you’re aware of how your coverage may be affected. Details on these changes are in your personalized enrollment kit as well as on the Human Resources website (www.hr.upenn.edu/benefits/oeenroll.asp).

If you don’t make any changes to your benefits during the Open Enrollment period, you will retain your current coverage, including your current Pre-Tax Expense Account contributions. And remember: your dependent children aged 19 to 23 will not be covered under your plans as of July 1, 2007, unless you actively certify–by April 20–that they are full-time college students.

Even if you don’t want to make changes to your current coverage, we encourage you to update your life insurance beneficiary information–simply go to the enrollment website at www.upenn.edu/u@penn and click on “Open Enrollment” under Announcements.

If you have any questions, the Penn Benefits Center is available to assist you. Call 1-888-PENNBEN (1-888-736-6236) from 8 a.m.–6 p.m., Monday–Friday.
