Benefits Open Enrollment Q&A:
Q: I am enrolled in Benefits already for this year 2011. Do I still have to make an election during Open Enrollment for next year?
A: No. Anyone who does not elect benefits during Open Enrollment will have the same medical, dental and visions elections they currently have.
Q: What about Dental? Since we have a new carrier (Delta Dental), do I need to sign up for that if I already have guardian?
A: No. If you are currently enrolled in Guardian Dental, your election will automatically enroll you in Delta Dental, effective January 1.
Q: Do I need to make a new election for my FSA if I had one in 2011?
A: Yes. You must make a new FSA election every year, no matter what.
Q: When is Open Enrollment?
A: November 7 through November 18.
