Benefits Open Enrollment Ends: Friday, April 16
April 13, 2010, Volume 56, No. 29

If you haven’t taken the opportunity to review your benefits coverage for the 2010–2011 plan year, now is the time. Benefits Open Enrollment—your annual opportunity to modify your benefits elections—will end this Friday, April 16. Detailed information about your healthcare plan options is available in the personalized Benefits 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, 2010–June 30, 2011). Keep in mind that new coverage rates will be reflected in your June 2010 paycheck, since healthcare premiums are deducted one month in advance (pre-tax expense account contributions will begin with your July 2010 paycheck).

From now until April 16, 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.
