The University's retiree 2012 annual benefits open enrollment period is from Monday, Sept. 26, through Friday, Oct. 7, with changes effective Jan. 1, 2012.

During this time, retirees may change or waive their health plan coverage, as well as remove dependents from their health care plan. If health care coverage is waived or if dependents are removed from the plan, re-enrollment at a later date is not permitted.

Retirees soon will be receiving information on plan changes, along with the new premium rates, in the mail. Beginning Sept. 26, details also will be available on the open enrollment website.

All pre-65 retirees and those retirees enrolled in the Premium, Standard and Princeton Medicare Plans will continue to have the option of electing to enroll in a vision plan. Information regarding the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan will be included in the open enrollment package.
