The Michigan State University Benefits Open Enrollment for the 2018 benefits plan year will be held from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31.

This is the time of year when benefits-eligible faculty, staff and retirees can re-evaluate their benefits selections and make changes, such as switching insurance plans, adding or removing dependents, or enrolling in Flexible Spending Account or voluntary benefit options. Faculty, staff and retirees must also complete the health care affidavit at this time to continue coverage for a spouse of Other Eligible Individual.

There will be a Benefits Fair during open enrollment where faculty, staff and retirees can learn about benefits options and ask questions of plan representatives and MSU Human Resources staff. The fair will also include online enrollment assistance, flu clinics and chair massages. The fair will be held as follows:

Noon to 5 p.m., Oct. 17, Breslin Center 

10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 18, Breslin Center 

7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Oct. 19, Breslin Center 

There are several changes to be aware of during this year’s open enrollment. To learn more, view the employee and retiree open enrollment guides and other detailed information here.
