Benefits Open Enrollment Has Begun

As of yesterday, Open Enrollment for the 2009–2010 benefits plan year has begun. This means that from now through Friday, April 17, you can make any changes you’d like to your benefits package. Enroll in a new healthcare plan, change your pre-tax expense account contribution amount, increase or decrease your life insurance coverage—the choice is yours.

By now, you should have received Open Enrollment materials at your home address. Be sure to examine those and visit the HR website at www.hr.upenn.edu to learn about your healthcare coverage options, as well as the changes being made to existing plans in the upcoming plan year.

To make changes to your benefits coverage at any time during Open Enrollment, visit www.pennbenefits.upenn.edu. If you don’t have  internet access, or are having problems enrolling online, contact the Penn Benefits Center at 1-888-PENN-BEN (1-888-736-6236), Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m.
