Complete Open Enrollment by Nov. 15 

Don’t miss your opportunity to evaluate your benefit choices and make changes. If you haven’t already done so, make sure the right benefit options are in place for you and your family next year.

If you don’t participate in Open Enrollment, your current elections automatically continue for next year—except your Flexible Spending Accounts and your Benefit Access Fee exemption, which must be selected each year.

Learn: Review the information on the Open Enrollment web pages, including 2019 Key Benefit Changes. If you’re in the Regular employee benefit group, check out the new Short-term Disability Plan.

Choose: Consider changing medical plans. If you cover a spouse or domestic partner on your medical plan, select the appropriate Benefit Access Fee—or exemption—which resets each year. Enroll in a Health Care or Dependent Day Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to reduce your taxable income.

Finalize: Sign in to PeopleSoft. Then go to Benefits, then Open Enrollment. When you’re done, use the Final Submit button and sign out.

Get support: Contact Benefits, Payroll and Retirement Operations at 206-684-1556 or KC Benefits. For in-person help, drop by the Chinook Building, 401 Fifth Ave., 2nd Floor, Seattle, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., or go to the computer lab in the Rhododendron Room on Nov. 15, 9–11:30 a.m.
