RETIREE OPEN ENROLLMENT 2023
Open Enrollment is every year for retiree medical insurance from August 1 to August 30 and any changes you make go into effect October 1.
Open Enrollment for dental insurance is once every three years (the next dental open enrollment is in 2024).
During Open Enrollment, you are selecting your benefits for October 1, 2023 through September 30, 2024.
IF YOU AREN'T MAKING ANY CHANGES TO YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE, NO ACTION IS REQUIRED.
Open Enrollment is your once-a-year opportunity for retirees to review current benefit elections and make changes such as:
- Change medical plans
- Add or drop dependents
- Drop medical plan
After Open Enrollment ends, you cannot change your benefit elections until the next Open Enrollment in 2024, unless you have a ‘qualified status change’.
