Open Enrollment Ends: Friday, April 17
April 14, 2009, Volume 55, No. 29

If you haven’t taken the opportunity to review your benefits coverage for the 2009–2010 plan year, now is the time.  Open Enrollment—your annual opportunity to modify your benefits elections—will end this Friday, April 17. Detailed information about your healthcare plan options is available in the personalized Open Enrollment materials you should have received at your home address in early April or on the Human Resources website at www.hr.upenn.edu/Benefits/OpenEnrollment.aspx.

Even if you don’t intend to make changes to your coverage, it’s still important to make sure you understand the changes being made to existing plans in the upcoming plan year (July 1, 2009–June 30, 2010). Keep in mind that new coverage rates will be reflected in your June 2009 paycheck, since healthcare premiums are deducted one month in advance (pre-tax expense account contributions will begin with your July 2009 paycheck).

From now until April 17, you can update your benefits coverage by visiting 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) between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday–Friday.
