Open Enrollment for eligible U-M faculty, staff and retirees seeking 2019 benefits begins today and runs until Nov. 2.
This is the period during which those eligible may change their U-M health plan, choose a different dental plan option, or enroll in the vision plan or legal services plan. Eligible faculty and staff may also enroll in a Flexible Spending Account.
Faculty and staff may make benefits changes through Wolverine Access until 5 p.m. Nov. 2. Retirees may use Wolverine Access or complete and return the form included in their Open Enrollment books. Changes and new rates take effect Jan. 1.
No action is required to keep current benefits — with one exception. IRS rules do not allow FSA enrollments to continue from one year to the next. Current FSA participants who wish to participate in an FSA for 2019 will need to re-enroll.
